While Billy is out for a walk, he comes across a lady who is looking rather worried. Offering to help, he discovers that her son hasn’t come home for his tea when he should have. Billy, who knows all the places where the local children go to play, suggests that he could look for him, which leads to an adventure involving various people and places in his home town, Flushington! In this intriguing story Billy once again demonstrates his willingness to help others and work out a way to do something which at first seems beyond him.
This is a fairly quick book but has a lot packed into it for a little person. But with a lit packed into this book, it gives us plenty of messages – kindness doesn’t cost anything, a vital road safety rule and to think about who your friends are.
Billy has a busy day when he agrees to help look for Mikey after spotting his mum crying while out. On his search he comes across another woman needing help and 2 kids who need reminding about road safety. Billy is the hero of the day!
This is a book I can recommend to parents and children over 5 years old.
My thanks to Faye Rogers and Clink Street publishers for my spot on the tour and my copy of the book.
