Publisher's Summary

Set in a small town of the industrial North of England in the late 1950s, this is a feel-good story about the antics of a young man's attempt to make something of himself with a little help from the lads in his yard. 

Thwarted with bad luck and inexperience, their journey of persistence never to miss an opportunity through the hardships of the time will make you smile.

Everyone loves a winner!

One of those heartwarming stories about normal people where you find yourself rooting for someone to succeed. Thoroughly enjoyed this book which had me roaring with laughter in places. It's rather short and could have been made a bit longer instead of having an epilogue to end the story. Well worth a listen.

Entertaining

An entertaining story of rags to riches with Northern charm and a bit of high jinx. I wasn't really sure whether I would like the book but it kept me engaged so much that I listened to all of the book in one sitting.
