Seed is a funny, big-hearted story by award-winner Caryl Lewis about the power of hope and imagination when you believe in the impossible. Perfect for listeners of 8-12.
The heart of Wonder meets the humour of The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates.
Marty doesn't have much. Unlike his mum, who has billions of things: newspapers, holey shoes, rusty lawnmowers, broken picture frames—she keeps EVERYTHING! It's hard to leave the house. Marty wonders if anything will ever change.
But on Marty's birthday, Grandad, with a glint in his eye, gifts Marty a very special seed. Grandad hasn't been this excited since he invented the bum scratcher 2000 or thought he'd brewed wonder fuel from rhubarb leaves! The seed grows bigger and bigger, and launches Grandad, Marty and his best friend, Gracie, on an impossible, wondrous plan fuelled by love, hopes and dreams.
Shortlisted for the Brandford Boase Award 2023.
Perfect for fans of Ross Welford, Jenny Pearson and Lisa Thompson.
"Some books are about magic. Some books ARE magic. Seed will cast a spell on you." (Frank Cottrell-Boyce)
