Product description

Review

Over-flowing with good humour ― Books For Keeps

Written with all Valentine’s usual skill and empathy we are drawn into the world of Joy and her difficult transition to life without the globe-trotting. The characters are clearly drawn, with an authentic family dynamic. The perfect length for readers enjoying a longer read as their next step. ―
LoveReading4Kids

I
love Jenny’s writing; it’s funny, smart and deft, with lots within it to delight the reader. -- Nicola Skinner, author of Bloom

One of the most bright and joyous books I've ever read! It's impossible not to fall in love with Joy and her story – it's just the silver lining we all need right now. -- Benjamin Dean, author of Me, My Dad and the End of the Rainbow

This book [. . .] is a delight for its warmth and humour, but principally because the writing is alive and stunning. ―
The Sunday Times, Children's Book of the Week
