Thomas sees amazing things that no one else can see: tropical fish swimming in the canal, sparrows playing bright trumpets and frogs wriggling through the letterbox. When his father hits his mother, Thomas sees the angels cover their eyes and weep. He writes it all down in The Bo...ok of Everything, including his wish: When I grow up, I'm going to be happy'. One of his biggest discoveries is that happiness begins with no longer being afraid.'A deeply moving story about a family. Could be any family - it could be about the whole world, really ...about the triumph of love over fear, life over death. So sad, so beautiful.'Ron Brooks'What a gorgeous, gorgeous story. Jaunty and quirky and sweetly funny,The Book of Everything is an absolute charmer.'Sonya HartnettA startling book for young and old.
