The World of Norm

(58 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Orchard Books

Norm is devastated that his family have down-sized their house, his father has no job, and his younger brothers seem to receive preferential treatment. Following a cycling disaster involving his best friend, a garage and a tea-set, Norm should have given the £100 reparation to his mother, but somehow it gets forgotten so that he can repair his bike.

Meres combines great humour with a portrait of boy whose response to trauma is to ignore it, and also shows how embarrassment and shame can cause us all into unwise decisions.

This funny illustrated book is an accessible read likely to find favour with fans of Wimpy Kid, Big Nate and Tom Gates.
