The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates

Freddie Yates likes facts. Just not the one staring him in the face – that his secret plan is not, in fact, secret.

Because Freddie's journey wasn't meant to involve Big Trev and the onion-eating competition or the loo-exploding pear-and-potato turnovers. And Freddie definitely didn't expect to end up, with his two best friends, on national television in a supergirl costume.

But journeys never take you where you think they will. And for Freddie, that fact might just have to be enough...

The super funny, heart-warming adventure of three boys, one summer holiday, and a few miracles along the way.

“A big-hearted comic journey about friendship, family, and a miraculously well-timed seagull.”
David Solomons, author of My Brother is a Superhero
“This sleuthing-trip-cum-crime-solving spree has all the fizz of Jeremy Strong.”
The Observer
“One of the funniest books you'll read this year, with bundles of heart to boot.”
Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
“Miracles may or may not happen, although coincidences do, but the laugh-out-loud story is, in the end, heartwarming about all kinds of families.”
The Sunday Times
“Full of laugh-out loud escapades”

Jenny Pearson

Jenny Pearson has been awarded with six mugs, one fridge magnet, one wall plaque and numerous cards for her role as ‘Best Teacher in the World’. When she is not busy being inspirational in the classroom, she would like nothing more than to relax with her two young boys, but she can’t as they view her as a human climbing frame. She has recently moved to the North East of England and while she has yet to meet Ant or Dec, she has learned how to use canny in a sentence. Which is dead canny, like.

Press reviews

…Making this heart-breaking and hilarious book the must read of the summer.
Sunday Express
Packed with slapstick humour and hilarious explorations of the ups and downs of all real friendships, the miracle of this book is the understanding that ‘family’ is not just people who share your name or your blood.
This is a hilarious story that will also touch your heart.
The School Librarian
An all-action adventure perfectly tailored for your own young mischief-makers!
