Congratulations to Jennifer Killick, whose first book, Alex Sparrow and the Really Big Stink was launched into the world last night at Waterstones Uxbridge from Firefly Press. It's now available through Waterstones and will be released widely next week. The book has been selected for the Summer Reading Challenge 2017!
Alex Sparrow is a super-agent in training. He is also a human lie-detector. Working with Jess - who can communicate with animals - they must find out why their friends, and enemies, are all changing into polite and well behaved pupils. And exactly who is behind it all. This is a humorous tale full of smells, jokes and superhero references. Oh, and a rather clever goldfish called Bob. In a world where kids' flaws and peculiarities are being erased out of existence, Alex and Jess must rely on what makes them different to save the day.
