Lenny’s Book Of EverythingGeneral
Lenny Spink is the sister of a giant. Her little brother Davey won’t stop growing – and at seven is as tall as a man.
When they receive their monthly instalment of Burrell’s Build-It-At-Home Encyclopedia set, fun and excitement burst into Lenny and Davey’s lives. The amazing, mysterious entries in the book’s pages give them a way to dream of escape: Lenny vows to become a beetle expert, while Davey decides he will run away to Canada and build a log cabin.
But as Davey’s disease progresses, the siblings’ richly imagined world becomes harder to cling to in this deeply moving and original novel about grief, family and wonder, by Karen Foxlee.
Most suitable for 11+.
