Churchill's Tale of Tails
by Anca Sandu

Published by Jonathan Cape
ISBN 978-1780080093


This is a funny and touching tale about friendship which also explores generosity and kindness and reminds children of the value of both friendship and being nice to one another.

Churchill is a very happy pig with a fabulous tail, of which is he enormously proud, so he is devastated when one day it goes missing. His friends rally round to help him find a new tale and Churchill enjoys discovering these alternative tails so much that he neglects his friends - until his real tale is returned.

There is loads of humour in this picture book, especially Churchill's ever-changing expressions and the variety of tails he tries.

The bestselling novel Wonder is now available in paperback, and there is the potential for the book to be made into a film.

The narrator, Auggie, wants to be like any other ordinary ten year old boy but this will never be because he has a severe facial disfigurement that makes other children scream and run away from him.

Until now, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life but now he is going to be sent to a real school for the first time. He is dreading it and has no idea how to convince his schoolmates that he is, like them, just an ordinary boy.

This is a frank, funny and incredibly moving story that will be enjoyed by those aged from nine to ninety.
