9780752891057: The Boy Who Could Fly

One day the Fat Fairy turns up at Thomas Top's house to grant him a birthday wish. Thomas can't think what to ask for, so he wishes he could fly. That's how Thomas goes from being just an ordinary boy whom no one notices to being the most popular boy in the school. But it makes him sad that grown-ups can't see the wonderful things he can do. His flying gets him suspended from school, and that makes life at home much worse, because his dad gets so cross and it makes his mum miserable. But then the Fat Fairy turns up again, and with help from her and Thomas's new friend Mr Vinnie, a retired painter and decorator who has been flying since he was Thomas's age, everything changes. This is an enchanting story in which an unconfident child discovers a special gift that brings him joy and heartache. The magic of the words, the humour and poignancy of the story and the wonderful characters, are all enhanced by the author's own delightful drawings. Read by Andrew Sachs

From AudioFile:

It's highly irregular for the Fat Fairy to make multiple visits to a single household. When she does, rest assured that nothing will be ordinary for Thomas and his family again. Additionally, if an alien should happen to visit, Gardner's characters know no bounds. Flying and invisibility are possible, and helpers Mr. Vinnie and Splodge are charmingly original. Glen McCready's pleasure as narrator of these two stories is clear. He shifts from a disgruntled parent to a mystified visitor to an awestruck youngster with aplomb and dexterity. His enthusiasm provides the utmost in enjoyment to each story. A.R. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
