_______________‘A very touching and honest story … Rico and Nick make a great team!’– Jacqueline Wilson_______________

An empowering adoption story by eleven-year-old Premier League Young Writer of the Year Rico Hinson-King, illustrated by the award-winning Nick Sharratt

There is a kid. Let's call him Charlie.

On the outside he looks like every other football-mad boy of his age. But he isn't ...

A story of hope and resilience, this gentle, inspiring picture book tells the tale of Charlie, a little boy who was taken into care when he was very small. Charlie dreams of finding his forever home to share with his sisters. Sometimes he feels scared. Sometimes he wants to scream and cry (and he does, just a little). But he is strong. He is tough.

Strong and Tough is by the amazingly talented ten-year-old Rico Hinson-King. Rico, like Charlie, found strength and resilience along the journey to find his forever family (and played lots of football along the way!). Rico is a Junior Premier League footballer with a knack for words too, who wrote his story so that other children going through similar circumstances can feel less alone, and to encourage empathy in others.

His moving and powerful words are paired with warm, friendly illustrations by the award-winning Nick Sharratt, who famously illustrated many of Jacqueline Wilson's books including the Tracy Beaker series.

“Perfect! Perfect! Perfect! (Review contains plot spoilers!)”

I love everything about this picture book!
It is a story about football, and how playing football (or, by extension, doing something you love) can make you forget your worries for a bit – what a useful message!
