Product Description
 
'A classic' Financial Times

The trouble with being a daydreamer who doesn't say much, like Peter Fortune, is that people are likely to think you are rather stupid or dull. No one can see the amazing things that are going on in your head, such as swapping bodies with a cat, or a baby; vanquishing the school bully; or discovering a mysterious cream that makes your family disappear. Peter learns that the best thing to do, if he wants people to understand him, is to write down some of the things that happen to him while he is staring out of the window or lying on his back looking at the sky. So in this book you'll find some of those strange and wonderful adventures, written down exactly as they happened.'A classic' Financial Times
