Stewart Foster's first children’s book, Bubble Boy was published in 2016, immediately won the Sainsbury's Children's Book Award and he has written three more deeply moving novels since. His books are heartfelt, funny and gripping – they have a light touch, yet are powerful and will inspire empathy with young readers aged 10 and up.
Bubble Boy - Joe, an 11-year old orphan, has virtually no immune system and has lived in a hospital (where everything is sterilised and clean) for all his life -with very few visitors. He loves superheroes and believes he is one. But then someone new enters his world and changes it forever…
All The Things That Could Go Wrong - Dan is angry. Nothing has been the same since his big brother left, and he’s taking it out on the nearest and weakest target: Alex. Then the two enemies are unexpectedly stuck together for the whole of the school holidays – what could possibly go wrong?
Check Mates - Felix is struggling at school. His ADHD makes it hard for him to concentrate and his schoolwork is suffering. Nobody seems to understand how hard he finds it. Mum suggests Felix spends time with his grandfather and Felix realises that sometimes the best lessons come from the most unexpected of places.
The Perfect Parent Project - ‘Two adults (or one) prepared to look after and love an 11-year-old-boy. And he promises to do the same for them’. Sam has been in and out of foster care his whole life and now he’s taking matters into his own hands by placing an ad to find perfect parents and a forever home.
