Don’t Look Now: Falling For It and The Kangapoo Key Ring (Book 1)

Paul Jennings, Andrew Weldon

The other kids don’t see things the same way as me. I spend a lot of time imagining things. I just don’t get it. Inside my head I am not the same as other kids.

Ricky is an ordinary boy, who dreams of being famous. And he has a secret that might just help him realise his dream. Because Ricky can fly. Truly. He can really fly. But there’s a hitch. He can only fly when absolutely no one is looking. If a person, an animal or a bird sees him while he’s flying, he will fall out of the sky and almost certainly die. But Ricky is desperate. Will he risk flying in public, just for a shot at fame?

The first two stories in a brilliant series presented in words and pictures by master story tellers Paul Jennings and Andrew Weldon. Don’t Look Now will have readers laughing out loud at Ricky and his hilarious adventures - on and off the ground.

Review

Young readers will enjoy this new, light-hearted series from celebrated Australian author Paul Jennings. With two in each book, these short and amusing stories, illustrated by Andrew Weldon, are a good choice for children who are ready for their next challenge after mastering early readers.

In the first story, Ricky discovers that he shares a very special talent with his dad, but unfortunately he can’t tell anyone about it. That doesn’t stop him using his special skill to pursue adventure and to try to do good deeds. Things don’t always turn out as Ricky hopes, but for the reader the journey is easy and lots of fun.

Recommended for girls and boys aged 6 to 9 years.
