The brilliantly funny and first book in the SAM WU series, starring the bravest scaredy-cat in the world! Perfect for reluctant readers and fans of STEM, Tom Fletcher, Pamela Butchart and Sam Copeland’s CHARLIE CHANGES INTO A CHICKEN. From the author pair behind new magic middle grade fantasy adventure, Dragon Mountain.
Sam Wu is NOT a scaredy-cat (except he is). When a trip to the Space Museum goes terrifyingly wrong, Sam begins a mission to prove to the school bully, and all of his friends, that he is a fearless space adventurer.
A truly laugh-out-loud, voice-led and madcap story of ghost hunting, snakes and mischievous pet cats called Butterbutt, perfect for fans of Tom Gates, Wilf the Mighty Worrier and Barry Loser, and readers aged six plus.
Common childhood fears dealt with in a hilarious, sensitive and accessible way.
