Adventures With a Difference

by Author David King
Come on an adventure with a boy who is a little bit different... He goes for lots of hospital visits and uses special equipment to get around. These things help him to lead a happy life... ...But Really – here’s where the fun starts!
I really enjoyed this book, it was both fun and inspiring.
Brilliantly illustrated , it blends the imaginative adventures of a young boy, born with a difference, with his real-life adventures in dealing with the challenges brought by that difference.
Parents and their children will love it and also learn from it.
