An ordinary kid is about to become an EXTRAORDINARY hero!

Wings? Check.
A super-cool, super-secret past? Check.
An impossible mission to save the world from a fur-ocious enemy? Check.

When Tunde sprouts wings and learns he’s all that stands between Earth and total destruction, suddenly school is the least of his problems. Luckily, his rag-tag group of pals have got his back, and with his new powers, Tunde is ready to fly in the face of danger.

So what if he can’t even stand up to the school bully? He’s the boy with wings – this is his destiny.

No pressure then. . .

This book is as laugh-out-loud funny as you’d expect, but it’s also packed with super-charged thrills, characters you really care about and a whole lot of heart. I think The Boy With Wings is the start of something really special.
Hilarious and heartfelt ... interwoven with messages about family, friendship, courage and belonging
