Children's Book of the Week - The Times, The Sunday TimesBest New Children's Books - GuardianThe Misadventures of Frederick is a funny, joyful story about friendship and the delights of outdoor adventures (even for the accident-prone) - wonderfully written by debut author Ben Manley and beautifully illustrated by Emma Chichester Clark, creator of Plumdog and Blue Kangaroo. In a mansion surrounded by lakes and forests, Frederick is bored.

He leads a very sheltered life: and when Emily invites him to play outside he has no choice but to refuse - what if he hurts himself?

Much better to stay safely indoors. But Emily is not one to take no for an answer . . . A series of brilliantly funny and evocative letters between Frederick and Emily tell this unique story which weaves together the colourful, adventurous world of Emily with Frederick's drab life of boredom and safety.
