It's a brand new book!
Charlie McGuffin has an incredible secret - he can change into all sorts of animals: a flea, a pigeon, even a rhino. Trouble is, he can’t decide when – it only happens when he gets worried. Even though every kid wants a superhero power, Charlie isn’t keen on changing into a chicken in the middle of the school play. So with the help of his three best friends, Charlie needs to find a way of dealing with his crazy new power – and fast!
On the face of it, this is just a basic funny story about superpowers but in fact its REAL power lies much deeper. It's more about how one deals with situations seemingly beyond one's control as well as looking at coping with stress, anxiety and dealing with the sickness of a loved one. It also looks at other relationships through bullying, friendship, families, working together, loyalty, and stage fright.
So, instead of questions next to each section I'm just going to ask you to make a note of some of the worries, fears and even happy moments you've had the last few days and I'll paste some quick activities you can do to keep yourself positive and keep your mind off things :)
