Sneak preview – Billy and the Sparkling Socks

My new children’s book for 7-9 year-olds called ‘Billy and the Sparkling Socks’ will hopefully be available in the next week or so (I am waiting for the proof to come so I can approve it). Meanwhile, here is a sneak preview of the first page, and a link to the cover:

Chapter One

School again tomorrow. Can’t wait,” Casper Bottomsby said to his ten-year-old brother, Billy. “Oh yes, how could I forget? I got a gold star in geography on Friday.” He beamed.

Billy gave a smile, and bowed his head. Only then, when no one could see, did a scowl appear on his face.

What’s up, Billy? Jealous of my good mark?” Casper said, grinning.

Billy tried to stay silent by clamping his mouth shut, but he failed as his face heated up and his cheeks start bulging out. He raised his head and faced his brother with a glare. “Stop bragging,” he said. “It’s boring. You’re boring!”

You’re jealous,” Casper said. “Jealous cos you don’t talk to your classmates. Never mind, eh.”

I am good at something!” Billy shouted. He stood up, scraping his chair back.

What?” Casper challenged him.

Don’t know. I will find out.”

Will let everyone know when it goes live on Amazon.
