Lenny's Book of Everything

Karen Foxlee

Pushkin Children's Books

Love is a wonderful thing, and it doesn't have conditions in this novel about sister and brother Lenny and Davy as they deal with the fact that Davy is very different from everyone else around him. Davy is growing. And growing and growing. He is diagnosed with a rare form of gigantism. But he and Lenny are also trying to figure out where their father went, if they have a grandmother, what is going to be in the next issue of the encyclopaedia that is heading their way in the post and which letter is their favourite, as each one opens up the world to the siblings just a bit more.

In this exquisite book about love and loss and caring for your family, Karen Foxlee has created a heart-rending and hopeful book that delights and surprises.

Selling points

  • Like Wonder by R.J. Palacio, this book tackles a complex subject by exploring the humanity of the people involced.
  • A literary book with delightful and surprising layers that will win the hearts of all who read it.
  • Lenny is a fabulously brave and tenacious character (who is also pleasingly flawed).
  • A tear-jerker that will leave the reader uplifted and full of hope.
