Fly Boy


From bestselling adult fiction author and renowned poet JJ Bola comes his astonishingly powerful debut picture book.

Fly Boy is angry.

Fly Boy is mad.

Fly Boy is jealous.

Fly Boy is sad.

Fly Boy’s wings are dark and red. At school he breaks pens and shoves and hits. Fly Boy is desperate to fly far, far away and escape all the pain. But there is always too much noise. Thomas’s wings are bright and blue—as clear as the sea and sky. Maybe, just maybe, he can help Fly Boy heal. . . .

Masterful, mesmerising, and the perfect entry point for parents looking to encourage conversations about children’s mental health. An unmissable picture book.
