The first book in a new series, your kids will warm to Jeremiah Lee (a.k.a. Jeri Telstar), a nerdy, homework-obsessed boy who has his heart in the right place. Unfortunately his actions are not always at the right time - like when he catches a giant bug and presents it in a box, to his (unsuspecting) teacher. Finally, one of his mis-actions brings on a three-month suspension from school - Jeremiah is elated but he is promptly sent off to another school in a town where his grandma Nan lives. It is there that he soon discovers a secret that will change his whole life. --Young Parents, Singapore
