Title: The Grand Genius Summer of Henry Hoobler

Written by: Lisa Shanahan

Henry Hoobler v2

Award winning author

A joyous, heartwarming story from the much-loved author of My Big Birkett.

It struck Henry that perhaps he was waiting for the exact right moment to be daring and brave. The exact right moment where he felt no worry at all, not one tiny flicker. But what if that moment never came? Henry Hoobler is a reluctant adventurer who is worried about his summer holiday camping at the beach: bugs, spiders, snakes, stingers, blue-ringed octopi or sharks. Worst of all, his family and friends are pushing him to ride his new silver bike – without training wheels. But when Henry meets Cassie, he discovers that courage is there to be found when you have a friend who is straight-up and true. Winner of the QLD Literary Awards for Children's Fiction in 2017 and short-listed for the CBCA Book of the Year for Younger Readers in 2018.
