"a comic romp packed with stunts"

Enter Jenny Pearson who has done the impossible and written a genuinely funny novel with a mental health theme, which children might actually want to read, jollied further by Erica Salcedo’s illustrations.

Pearson has form: her debut last year, The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates, an adventure story featuring a glorious gang of kids, was a breath of fresh air. Now Pearson, a teacher, has followed it up with the story of Lucy and her best friend Sandesh who go on a mission to try to heal Lucy’s depressed mother. Lucy is living with her kind but catastrophising aunt Sheila and wants to go home.
