Десятилетний Джейми не плакал уже несколько лет – с того самого дня, когда жизнь его семьи раскололась на "до" и "после". С того самого дня, когда его сестра Роза поселилась на каминной полке. И хотя вокруг твердили, что со временем все наладится, с каждым чертовым днем становится только хуже: папа не расстается с бутылкой, старшая сестра Жасмин бунтует, а мама и вовсе сбежала. Но Джейми верит, что она обязательно-преобязательно вернется, и тогда все будут счастливы, как прежде. Для этого он готов на что угодно, даже стать знаменитым…
Так начинается удивительно трогательная история о неожиданной дружбе, самом лучшем в мире коте и супергероях, живущих в каждом из нас. История о том, что значит терять и что значит по-настоящему сражаться за свою семью. История, которая заставит улыбнуться. Сквозь слезы.

Being Billy is the award-winning first novel by Phil Earle.

***Heroic, Phil Earle's hugely anticipated third novel is out on 24 April 2013***

Faces flashed before my eyes.
And for every face there was a time that they had let me down.
Each punch that landed was revenge, my chance to tell them I hadn't forgotten what they did.

Eight years in a care home makes Billy Finn a professional lifer. And Billy's angry - with the system, the social workers, and the mother that gave him away.

As far as Billy's concerned, he's on his own. His little brother and sister keep him going, though they can't keep him out of trouble.

But he isn't being difficult on purpose. Billy's just being Billy. He can't be anything else.

Can he?

'Phil Earle writes starkly but sensitively about damaged children in this brilliant page-turning novel. It moved me to tears' - Jacqueline Wilson

'Being Billy was a total page-turner - authentic and gritty. Billy's voice doesn't falter . . . spiky, brave and compassionate' - Jenny Downham, author of Before I Die

'Moving and powerful, I loved it' - Sophie McKenzie

Phil Earle was born, raised and schooled in Hull. His first job was as a care worker in a children's home, an experience that influenced the ideas behind Being Billy. He then trained as a drama therapist and worked in a therapeutic community in south London, caring for traumatized and abused adolescents.

After a couple of years in the care sector, Phil chose the more sedate lifestyle of a bookseller, and now works in children's publishing. Phil lives in south-east London with his wife and children, but Hull will always be home.

When a storm sweeps through the country, Asa wakes up the next day to find that his town is almost unrecognisable - trees have fallen down, roofs have collapsed and debris lies everywhere.

Asa embarks on a mission to find out. A mission that leads him to the lost journals of local eccentric Benjamin Tooth who, two hundred years earlier, claimed to have discovered the existence of fairies.

Milo is nearly 13, has just moved house and started a new school (both
for the umpteenth time) - him and his dad and sister are trying to
adjust to life without Milo's mum, who has died, but they aren't coping
very well and no-one is really talking about it. It's not all doom and
gloom though, I promise. It's a tough subject, but dealt with a light
touch and plenty of sparky humour - it's actually really, really funny,
and interspersed throughout with cartoon illustrations that provide
easier access to the tough issues and engage readers in a different way.
The book is never heavy or preachy - sensitive and sad, yes, but
ultimately a hugely entertaining read.

A New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book of 2011!

A picture-book delight by a rising talent tells a cumulative tale with a mischievous twist.

The bear's hat is gone, and he wants it back. Patiently and politely, he asks the animals he comes across, one by one, whether they have seen it. Each animal says no, some more elaborately than others. But just as the bear begins to despond, a deer comes by and asks a simple question that sparks the bear's memory and renews his search with a vengeance. Told completely in dialogue, this delicious take on the classic repetitive tale plays out in sly illustrations laced with visual humor-- and winks at the reader with a wry irreverence that will have kids of all ages thrilled to be in on the joke.
