The Astounding Broccoli Boy
by Frank Cottrell Boyce
Sometimes you just need to laugh. And when you do, this is the perfect kind of book. It’s just silly enough to entertain with just enough depth to keep the reader engaged.
Poor Rory is always looking over his should for the evil Tommy-Lee. When the two boys suddenly turn bright green they are locked into a hospital ward – together. Hilarity, danger, and friendship ensue.
Get ready for some British humor and slang. You might even add some expressions to your vocabulary!
