Product description

We have selected The Boy Who Fooled the World as our 7-11 Book of the Month for World Book Day – new from Lisa Thompson, who is rapidly becoming a standout name in issue-led middle-grade fiction. Like her previous books The Goldfish Boy and The Day I Was Erased, this book explores topics of anxiety and fitting in a compassionate and very accessible way.

Perfect for children who have read David Walliams and Diary of a Wimpy Kid and are keen to move up to the next level, it tells the story of Cole, whose family are struggling financially when a painting he made in art class suddenly sells for a tremendous sum. As Cole becomes the toast of the art world, hailed as a boy genius, will he dare to admit that a little white lie has spun horribly out of control? Incredibly readable, funny, poignant and just a little bit magical, this book is ideal for reading together with older children, exploring relevant discussion points such as dealing with worry and the pressure to fit in.

Also available in class sets of six and 30 copies.
