Twelve Days of Xmas Book Recommendations – Day 1 – Lou Treleaven


Letters to Pluto is a brilliantly funny book by the equally brilliant Lou Treleaven:

Jon’s teacher wants to keep the art of letter writing alive and starts an interstellar penpal programme.  Jon is not impressed, especially as his penpal Straxi is from Pluto, the most boring, smelliest and far away place in the whole solar system.  And if that wasn’t bad enough, she is a girl!  A hilarious story of friendship, annoying teachers, planet saving and of course letter writing.”

Younger readers will also love Lou’s amazing picture books. ‘Daddy and I’ is particularly tear jerking!

This is part of my drive to recommend books by non-celeb authors and to get people to frequent their local bookshop. Remember – if they don’t have it, ORDER IT!
