Me, My Dad and the End of the Rainbow

by Benjamin Dean, illustrated by Sandhya Prabhat - £7.99  Simon & Schuster Ltd (2021)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781471199738 | ISBN 10: 1471199738

The rainbow-filled, JOYOUS debut from a hugely exciting new talent.
 
Perfect for 9+ readers and fans of Lisa Thompson, Stewart Foster and Onjali Rauf's bestselling The Boy at the Back of the Class.
 
My name's Archie Albright, and I know two things for certain:
 
1. My mum and dad kind of hate each other, and they're not doing a great job of pretending that they don't anymore.

2. They're both keeping a secret from me, but I can't figure out what. 

 
Things aren't going great for Archie Albright. His dad's acting weird, his mum too, and all he wants is for everything to go back to normal, to three months before when his parents were happy and still lived together.
 
When Archie sees a colourful, crumpled flyer fall out of Dad's pocket, he thinks he may have found the answer. Only problem? The answer might just lie at the end of the rainbow, an adventure away.
 
Together with his best friends, Bell and Seb, Archie sets off on a heartwarming and unforgettable journey to try and fix his family, even if he has to break a few rules to do it...
 
Recommended for readers aged 9+
