    Avis de l'équipe

    Get ready for the title of this children’s book. Are you ready? How Hedley Hopkins Did a Dare, Robbed a Grave, Made a New Friend Who Might Not Really Have Been There at All, And While He Was at it Committed a Terrible Sin Which Everyone Was Doing Even Though He Didn’t Know It. Whew!

    The whimsical title does not belie this whimsical, yet poignant, tale about a boy, Hedley Hopkins, who moves to Australia from England in the 1950s. Hedley struggles to fit in and impress his new peers, making some unfortunate choices along the way, but learning some things about life too. This is about growing up.

    Performed with empathetic teenaged angst by Jerome Pride.

    Description

    Hedley Hopkins has a few problems: he is the new kid at school, straight off the boat from England in the 1950s. The only friends he has made are the kids at the Loony Bin. But if he could just fulfill a dare and dig out the hideous skull hidden in a grave in the sand dunes, he could impress the bullies at school and become their friend.

    But Hedley is not so sure. Weird things are happening to his body. Is he being punished for his terrible actions? And if his uptight parents ever found out what he was up to, they might blow up.

    Full-moon murderers, an open grave, religious conversions and sexual awakening meld sometimes poignantly, sometimes hilariously, in this riveting, stunningly original account of growing up in 1950s Australia.

    "This gentle tale is told with warmth and humor. Somehow, Jennings manages to get into the head of a 12-year-old boy, and does it flawlessly." ( Good Reading Magazine)
