Derek Dool Supercool: Run for Your Life

 Derek Dool Supercool: Run for Your Life by Adrian Beck, illustrated by Scott Edgar (Puffin) PB RRP $14.99 ISBN 978 1760892975

Here is yet another book in the Derek Dool series which is targeted at readers aged 9+ years. It is a humorous series in the vein of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Timmy Failure being highly illustrated in a fun and energetic style.

Derek is far from being a natural athlete but he’s willing to have a go. The school’s cross-country is coming up and Derek aims to win it. However, all his plans fall apart when the race begins, especially as there are rumours of a witch lurking in the bush. Are the rumours true?

Featuring breakout chapters and jokes, this series is perfect for both confident and reluctant readers. Underneath the bravado, the antics and the sometimes laugh-out-loud humour, themes of hobbies, friendship, family, self-confidence, resilience, and staying true to yourself resound.
