It's so refreshing to have a young protagonist who just happens to have a disability, especially without it driving the narrative. Thimble does that all by himself just fine, and so Jams' disability never becomes the focal point of the story, as quite rightly it shouldn't - it's just one of those normal things that happens in life, and is treated as such very sensitively by Jon, without losing any of the humour that comes from Thimble's constant battles with Dad.
This time around, the family go on a home-exchange holiday in France. Cue some outright nonsense with a speedboat, power tools, Dad's trousers and some rather suspect sausages. The prose never feels patronising to the junior reader, which is all-important in encouraging kids to read without making them feel like they are being given something 'for children', and this really will appeal to anyone who loves Roald Dahl, David Walliams, Jeremy Strong etc.
A must read for anyone who loves a laugh!
