A touching comedy from a Carnegie Medal winning author is given a brand new package. George's birthday is as uneventful as ever. Until he opens his grandad's present and finds some aftershave and cufflinks from 1982. George's mum wants to recycle it, but for some strange reason George wants to hang on to it. And when he opens it, some very strange things start happening - Hilarious comedy from Carnegie Medal winner Frank Cottrell Boyce. With a reading age of 8, it is particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers.
Frank Cottrell Boyce is the Carnegie Medal winning author of Millions and award winning screen and TV writer. He has also been short-listed for the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year, the Blue Peter Book Award, and the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. His books include the bestselling Framed and Cosmic. None of this has helped him discover why all of his socks seem to disappear, how anyone can hate marmite, or love brussels sprouts! He lives in Liverpool.
