Sometimes, to save the people you love, you have to go overboard. A story of hope, ball control, and an incredible journey.
"Morris Gleitzman's children's stories are among the most widely read and loved." (AudioFile)
This was a great story for my class novel read. My 5th graders hung on every word☆
Great way to engage reluctant boys in reading and everyone else in the class. We worried, laughed and cheered!

If you could sum up Boy Overboard in three words, what would they be?
What about Morris Gleitzman’s performance did you like?
Illustrates the concerns that asylum seekers have, the fact they are escaping war torn lives and prosecution.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
So many, from the land mine to the search plane.
Any additional comments?
Every though its a short book, I was constantly entertained and interested. Loved it.
