Description

It's one giant leap for all boy-kind in Frank Cottrell Boyce's out-of-this-world story: Cosmic.

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 to 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.

This edition of Cosmic includes bonus material and discussion questions from Frank Cottrell Boyce and features fantastic cover artwork from Steven Lenton.

Funny, engaging and in the end rather moving. -- Charlie Higson * Guardian * A writer of comic genius - he has something of Roald Dahl's magic, but more heart. -- Sunday Telegraph * Sunday Telegraph * An exciting, funny story that you don't want to put down. -- Jemima Simm, aged 11 * First News * Five-laughs-a-page, fall-off-the-chair funny. -- Mail on Sunday * Mail on Sunday *
