9780141346298: The Bubble Wrap Boy

The new book from the award-winning Phil Earle, author of Heroic and Being Billy.

'Have finished BUBBLE-WRAP BOY. If happy tears/snot smeared across face were legal currency, @philearle would be rich. So warm, and so funny' - Katherine Rundell, author of Rooftoppers.

All my life I've been tiny Charlie from the Chinese Chippie, whose only friend is Sinus, the kid who stares at walls.

But I believe that everyone's good at something.

I've just got to work out what my something is...

Charlie's found his secret talent: skateboarding. It's his one-way ticket to popularity. All he's got to do is practice, and nothing's going to stop him - not his clumsiness, not his overprotective mum, nothing.

Except Charlie isn't the only one in his family hiding a massive secret, and his next discovery will change everything.

How do you stay on the board when your world is turned upside down?

Phil Earle was born, raised and schooled in Hull. His first job was as a care worker in a children's home, an experience that influenced the ideas behind Being Billy and Saving Daisy. He then trained as a drama therapist and worked in a therapeutic community in south London, caring for traumatized and abused adolescents.

After a couple of years in the care sector, Phil chose the more sedate lifestyle of a bookseller, and now works in children's publishing. Phil lives in south-east London with his wife and children, but Hull will always be home.
