Publisher's Summary

Liam is too big for his boots. And his football strip. And his school blazer. But being super-sized height-wise has its advantages: he's the only eleven-year-old to ever ride the G-force defying Cosmic rollercoaster - or be offered the chance to drive a Porsche. Long-legged Liam makes a giant leap for boy-kind by competing with a group of adults for the chance to go into space. Is Liam the best boy for the job? Sometimes being big isn't all about being a grown-up.

Enjoyed every minute

I had to read this book as it will be used an English writing resource. Listened to it to and from school each day and loved it. Can't wait to share with the cherubs in my class! They too will love it I am sure.

Witty and entertaining

Any additional comments?

Kids love this. One for slightly older children to appreciate the humour best, but a firm favourite.

Funny story about "dadliness"

Any additional comments?

Great story for all the family (loved by a seven-year old girl, a teenage boy and adults in our house). The story takes a funny (and simultaneously terrifying) trip into space while sneaking in a consideration of what it is to be a good father ("dadliness")- sounds like an unlikely combination but this has been one of my teenage son's favourite books for a few years.

Brilliant by Tom age 9

I think this book is funny. Also it's interesting that it's an audio diary. I liked Doctor Drax because she is very rich and built the Building of Infinite Possibility. I recommend this book because it has a brilliant storyline and is funny. Also the story is told backwards because you only find out what happened at the launch in the middle of the story.
