One of Sunday Times' best children's books for summer


Endorsed by Child Bereavement UK

A funny, heartbreaking story about life and loss, and

making every second count.

Eric's best friend, Finn Jones, was the world's biggest prankster.

Now Eric can't believe Finn's not here anymore. ...Or is


Eric seems to be getting messages from beyond the grave, and as

he follows Finn's wild, cryptic instructions, his hope grows that

he'll find Finn laughing at the end.

The journey also brings memories - and a truth that seems impossible

to accept.

Simon James Green is the award-winning author of books like Sleepover

Sleepover Takeover

"This is a fantastically funny, exciting, unexpected, and

sometimes touching, mystery thriller" BookTrust

"A funny madcap mystery adventure perfect for fans of Danny

Wallace's THE DAY THE SCREENS WENT BLANK or Charlie Higson's WORST.

HOLIDAY. EVER." LoveReading 4 Kids

Life Of Riley: Beginner's Luck

"This funny, gentle story is packed with snappy humour and

hilarious characters." BookTrust

"Though the laughs are sustained from start to finish, there

is some depth to the drama in Life of Riley, too. The characterisation

is original and refreshing." Books For Keeps

"This funny, gentle story is packed with snappy humour and

hilarious characters. You can’t help but love Riley, a brilliant,

witty, world-weary kid and long-suffering underdog. There’s

a lovely message about being grateful for all the things

that you have and for appreciating the people who support you, no

matter what. Perfect for Diary of a Wimpy Kid fans or children

about to start secondary school, though there’s a lot of fun

to be had for grown ups here too." LoveReading

There are some writers who, to me at least, seem to have the golden touch. They cannot write a bad book and indeed, just as I think they have reached the top of their game, they blow me away with a piece of writing so... More
