During Black History Month, we spent time learning about local black heroes. We found out lots of information about Lenny Henry, who was born in Dudley in the West Midlands. His life story was so inspiring and interesting that we really wanted to read his new book, 'The Boy with Wings'. We love the story so far!
If you enjoy reading funny stories, then this is the story for you!
Twelve-year-old Tunde is just your average kid: average friends, average parents, average grades. Sure, he has his quirks, but if he can avoid the school bullies and hang out with his ragtag group of friends, he’s happy enough. But his life is about to get turned upside down when, in the middle of a football match, Tunde leaps for the ball and stays in the air – on an enormous pair of wings!
Everything Tunde knows is about to change. Under the guidance of a mysterious visitor known as The Seeker, he discovers new-found powers, a secret past, and some seriously powerful people who are determined to keep that past buried, whatever the cost. With strange things happening in a place known as The Facility and someone important in need of rescue, Tunde is going to need more than a little help from his friends. Join Tunde, Kylie, Jiah and Neville on an out-of-this-world adventure that brings Tunde face-to-face with his destiny.
An average kid is about to become an EXTRAORDINARY hero!
