A hilarious and heartfelt novel for readers aged 8+

Young readers will find much to relate to in the latest book by award-winning author Ben Davis

We are huge fans of Ben Davis's books. He combines hugely empathetic real world stories with relatable characters and bags of humour. This one is perfect summer reading for middle grade bookworms.


This summer, 12-year-old Alex is taking over his dad's postal delivery job. What could go wrong?
In order to get his family back together, Alex comes up with a brilliant plan: if Dad finally writes the novel he's always talked about, he'll be happier again and his parents will fall back in love.

Dad just needs to get away from work for a while to do it.

Alex tricks his dad into thinking he's been selected for a creative sabbatical, and starts to do the postal deliveries himself. But it's harder than Alex had ever realized, and there are the bullies who throw his letters in the canal, an overly suspicious boss, and a lot of angry dogs to avoid.

He finds unexpected help in Willow, a girl on the canal who offers to share the work ... but has a dark secret that might derail everything.

As Alex's ruse starts to fall apart, he needs his dad more than ever. Meanwhile, his dad comes to understand that the thing he needs most isn't publishing a novel ... it's Alex.

Ben Davis is an award-winning author of children's books, including The Soup Movement. He lives in Tamworth, Staffordshire, with his wife, son and wimpy dog.
