Magical Children: The Strongest Girl In The World

Magical Children: The Strongest Girl In The World

From Costa Children’s Book Award winner and multi-million bestselling author Sally Gardner, comes the story of the strongest eight year old in the world from the MAGICAL CHILDREN series.

Josie Jenkins, aged eight and three quarters, can do a few tricks, but she astonishes herself and everyone else when she finds she can lift a table, a car and even a bus with no effort at all. Josie becomes famous, and Mr Two Suit sweeps in with a contract and swoops the whole family off to New York. How Josie copes with fame and fortune, and with the loss of it when she wakes up one day to find she can’t do her trick any more, makes a story of enormous charm, with a tiny, modest and sensible heroine you have to cheer for.

Entrancing drawings on every page make this a really special book.
