Man About the House, Paperback

Man About the House Paperback

Illustrated by Nelson Evergreen

Part of the Wired Up series


Jeza lives with his mum and teenage sister. His dad is preoccupied with his new girlfriend and toddler daughter.

Jeza feels frustrated at the lack of boy's stuff in his life - he needs dad time too.

But can he get Dad to listen, and how can he explain that he needs a dad in his life without hurting his mum?

A powerfully emotional story, tackling a real social problem with sensitivity and humour.

Highly readable, exciting books that take the struggle out of reading, Wired Up encourages and supports reading practice by providing gripping, age-appropriate stories for struggling and reluctant readers, or those with English as an additional language, aged 11+, at a manageable length (80 pages) and reading level (9+).

Produced in association with reading experts at CatchUp, a charity which aims to address underachievement caused by literacy and numeracy difficulties.
