Waterstones Says

At once a laugh-out-loud funny and hugely thrilling read from the beloved comedian, The Book of Legends follows two ordinary kids who embark on an epic adventure filled with evil princes, mud monsters and Viking armies.

From comedy legend Lenny Henry comes his incredible new middle grade novel, The Book of Legends, perfect for fans of outrageous adventures and illustrated throughout by the incredibly talented Keenon Ferrell.

Two ordinary kids are about to go on one extraordinary adventure!

Bran and Fran love living with their mum, who is the storyteller at the Once Upon a Wow bookstore in their small Midlands town. But when mum goes missing and her stories turn out to be a portal to another world, they're going to have a huge, magical adventure on their hands.

Luckily, they have Wilma, the Wizard's Wife, and Zack, the wisecracking Zebracorn, to help them on their journey. And they're going to need help because there are evil princes, mud monsters and Viking armies all standing in their way...

MEDIA REVIEWS

The Book of Legends is a much-needed book about friendship, family and imagination. It truly is an effortlessly witty delight that transports readers to a different world. - Tennille Rolingson, Jericho Prize

[A] celebration of the vitality of storytelling, The Book of Legends made me laugh, made me teary, left me happy and hopeful. - Sanjeev Bhaskar, actor and comedian

[M]y nine-year-old daughter loved The Book of Legends so much that she stayed up for hours in bed with it, palely turning the pages long after she would normally have fallen asleep - Tom Lamont, The Guardian

With its wonderful evocation of a magical other-world and the warm-hearted dynamics of family love and friendship, this high-octane adventure will have youngsters giggling, gasping and guffawing from first page to last. - Pam Norfolk, Lancashire Post

Always looking for genuinely laugh out loud funny books and [The Boy with Wings] 100% delivered. THANK YOU. - Louie Stowell, bestselling author of Loki: A Bad God's Guide to Being Good on The Boy With Wings

This book is as laugh-out-loud funny as you’d expect, but it’s also packed with super-charged thrills, characters you really care about and a whole lot of heart. I think The Boy With Wings is the start of something really special. - Bestselling author and illustrator Nadia Shireen on The Boy With Wings

Henry's first book for children is as funny as might be expected but it's also quietly thoughtful and poignant, examining ideas of heritage, family, love and belonging in a way that lifts the Chosen One troupe out of the territory of cliché. - Books for Keeps on The Boy With Wings
