Minnie is fascinated by the unusual Briggsy. He shares with her his passion for cooking, the stars and his talent for buying and selling things. But his family works in the fairground, so he never lives anywhere for long. This is a story about growing up, friendship and learning about life. This book is suitable for reluctant readers of 14 plus, with a reading age of eight years and above. It is printed on cream paper, which is proven to be more restful on the eye. The font is specially designed to encourage a smooth and easy read. There are frequent page breaks, short, headed chapters and illustrations on almost every page. A wide range of specialists, including children themselves, have read and commented on the book prior to publication.
