Laugh Out Loud with Freddie in an award-winning book

Here's a book that should bring a smile to your face - it's the winner of this year's Laugh Out Loud Book Awards, also known as the Lollies.

The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates by Jenny Pearson and illustrated by Rob Biddulph, is officially the funniest children's book in the UK and Ireland as voted for by young readers.

And we have it in the academy library, so there's no need to miss out on the fun of reading about three boys, one summer holiday and a few miracles along the way.

The book is aimed at readers aged between nine and 13, and they discover that Freddie Yates likes facts, has a not-so-secret plan and is on a journey which wasn't meant to involve an onion-eating competition - but is does.

Congratulations to the 2022 Lollies.
