What to Read After... Judy Blume 20/01/20
The Boy Who Sailed the Ocean in an Armchair
Becket Rumsey has several mysteries to solve. Amongst other things, he wants to find out why his dad decided they needed to move house and he wants to find a way to say goodbye to his mum. With the help of his younger brother Billy, and Billy's pet snail Brian, he manages to find the answers to these questions and others he wasn't aware he was asking.
Lara Williamson has created another book with a modern family at its heart. When Becket tries to understand the actions of the adults in his life, he often makes mistakes - and things don't start out brilliantly at his new school.
We are shown how strange events can seem through the eyes of a young boy, but also how simple things can be inspirational. Fans of A Boy Called Hope will not be disappointed.
