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.


What the Critics Say

"Hilarious and ingenious hymn to dadliness and all things dadly...A thoroughly warmhearted CD with a serious, unsentimental core, perfect for silencing quarrels on long car journeys."(The Daily Telegraph)

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.

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.
