Uncle Pete and the Boy Who Couldn't Sleep (Paperback)

£6.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Uncle Pete and the Boy Who Couldn't Sleep tells the story of Harry, a young boy who has never slept his entire life, no matter how hard his parents try.



With all the bedtime stories, songs and milky drinks in his town exhausted - along with all the people - it's Harry's eccentric explorer uncle, Pete, who ultimately comes to his aid with the help of a map, a rickety old biplane, a tiny mouse companion called TM, and one very special sheep.



The story is a magical and hilarious adventure of the imagination involving the remarkable journey undertaken by Uncle Pete and his fearless female sidekick, with themes of determination, collaboration, ingenuity, kindness and acceptance.

David C. Flanagan is a writer and award-winning journalist based in the Orkney Islands. Born, raised and educated in Edinburgh, he studied journalism in the city before returning to his ancestral home in the islands where he worked as a reporter on the local weekly newspaper, The Orcadian. He's been freelance since 2002, providing news, features and content for a variety of publications and websites. David also acts as location manager for film and television crews operating in Orkney. His first book, Board, was published by Fledgling Press in 2015 and recounted his hapless attempts to learn to surf in middle-age, on the wild Atlantic coast of Orkney. He still surfs, badly, and also loves skateboarding, fitness training and walking in the Scottish mountains. Uncle Pete and the Boy Who Couldn't Sleep is David's first story for children, reflecting his passion for adventure stories, his love of animals, and his slightly whacky sense of humour.
