What would you do if you could never leave your bubble? A poignant, heartwarming tale from inside the hospital wallsthat teaches children the importance of treating people with kindness and empathy. Perfect for fans of Wonder and The Boy At The Back of the Class.
Amir is mad. He's crazy. But the hospital wouldn't let a crazy person in. They must have interviewed him and checked his qualifications. But maybe he didn't even meet them? Maybe he hasn't even come from India. He might have arrived on an alien spaceship and snuck in here in the middle of the night.
Eleven-year-old Joe cant remember a life outside of his hospital room, with its beeping machines and view of Londons rooftops. His condition means hes not allowed outside, not even for a moment, and his few visitors risk bringing life-threatening germs inside his bubble. But then someone new enters his world and changes it for ever.
THE BUBBLE BOYis the story of how Joe spends his days, copes with his loneliness and frustrations, and looks - with superhero-style bravery, curiosity and hope - to a future without limits. Expect superheroes, super nurses and a few tears from this truly unique story.
