Waterstones Says

Tom Percival has already proved himself adept at writing about emotion for pre-school children with his Big Bright Feelings series and in the first in a new illustrated fiction series for younger independent readers he tackles the challenges of learning to be yourself in an action-packed and humour-filled adventure.

A Marcus Rashford Book Club Choice! Silas and the Marvellous Misfits by Tom Percival is an action-packed adventure that shows kids the joy of being themselves.

Erika has a BIG secret. She's a member of the Dream Defenders - a top-secret organisation that banishes your worries while you sleep!

And tonight they're on a mission to rescue Erika's best friend Silas from the clutches of the evil Glooms - creatures who want everyone in the dream world to look and think exactly the same way!

Can the Dream Defenders save Silas and help him to see that being a misfit can be a truly marvellous thing?

Discover more of the Dream Defenders adventures in Erika and the Angermare and Chanda and the Devious Doubt.

The Marcus Rashford Book Club is a collaboration between Marcus Rashford and Macmillan Children's Books, inspiring children to develop a love of reading and literacy as a life skill.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Encouraging children to find joy in, and celebrate, their differences is so powerful in today's society. Tom inspires this mindset in the most fun, engaging, action-packed way. I would have loved to read this book as a child!' - Marcus Rashford MBE

'An action-packed new illustrated fiction series for independent readers that explores anxiety - and how to conquer it -through rip-roaring adventure stories!' - Little London, feature on children's books and anxiety

'An energetic adventure, with two-colour illustrations throughout and relatively short, manageable chapters for younger readers. Whilst the story is set in a fun alternative world, Percival manages to cleverly weave in themes of emotional care, as Erika's bad mood also attracts a dangerous Angermare and she has to learn to manage her own anger in order to defeat it.' - BookTrust, Books We Love

'I'd happily have this on my bookshelf at school but I would also happily recommend this for any parent to read with or give to their child to read' - Small Tomes Big Minds

'A fun and engaging way to reassure youngsters and help them cope with their anxieties. . . . Ideal for sharing at home to help children through periods of anxiety, or for reading in schools as guidance with behavioural problems and anger management, this exciting new series could turn youthful nightmares into the sweetest dreams.' - Lancashire Evening Post
