Twenty Year 7 and 8 pupils at Cranleigh Prep School were treated to a chapter from Ben Dixon’s new YA Humour book The Heroic Truths of Neil Peel. Neil is a boy who gets into difficult situations due to the fact that he always tells the truth, no matter what.
Initial scepticism about whether or not it would be funny melted away within the first paragraph about a comedy school football match for the unwilling and uncoordinated!
Afterwards, the pupils asked excitedly where and when they could get hold of the book.
Ollie said it was a funny comedy for all ages while Dan liked it because you could see yourself in these situations.
The perfect stocking filler for hard-to-please teens has arrived just in time!
