Book:

THE BOY WHO SAILED THE OCEAN IN AN ARMCHAIR

Lara Williamson

 

Becket Rumsey is all at sea.

 

More than anything he needs to say goodbye to a loved one.
His dad has run away with him and his brother Billy in the middle of the night. And they’ve left everything behind, including their almost-mum Pearl. Becket has no idea what’s going on – it’s a mystery.

 

So with the help of Billy and a snail called Brian, Becket sets out on a journey of discovery. It’s not plain sailing but then what journeys ever are?

 

When you lose someone, goodbye isn’t the end. There is no full stop. It’s just the beginning of a new and different journey. Then again, that’s something Becket needs to discover for himself…

 

An extraordinary story of courage, dreams and finding your way.
