Give Peas A Chance

Publisher: Puffin

Fifteen funny stories, at times comic, wry, whimsical, moving, off-the-wall and downright hilarious, make up this brilliant book.

Meet Macques, whose parents want to make him unique by spelling his name strangely; and Mark, who takes his cricket-mad Grandad's ashes to a Test Match but the wind is blowing the wrong way; not to mention Nat and friends, who shave their heads to cheer up their hospitalised friend as the bandages come off her fire-damaged face.

Each punchy story induces laughter, yet also tackles a serious issue - from global warming and terrorism to parental honesty and the holiday plans of a nose germ. As well as making readers chuckle, these stories also make them think.
