From Waterstones Book Prize 2014 shortlisted author, Lara Williamson, The Boy who Sailed the Ocean in an Armchair is perfect for fans of Michael Morpurgo, Jacqueline Wilson and Wonder by R J Palacio.

Becket Rumsey is all at sea. His dad has run away with him and his brother Billy in the middle of the night. And they've left everything behind, including their almost-mum Pearl. Becket has no idea what's going on - it's a mystery. So with the help of Billy and a snail called Brian, Becket sets out on a journey of discovery. It's not plain sailing but then what journeys ever are? An extraordinary story of courage, dreams and finding your way, from the bestselling author of A Boy Called Hope (shortlisted for the 2014 Waterstones Book Prize).

A Boy Called Hope was a standout debut in 2014, and this shows the same emotional depth and poignancy, though told with a very accessible lightnes of touch. --The Bookseller

Prepare to laugh, cry and simply marvel at a tale beautifully told as talented children's author Lara Williamson sets sail on an extraordinary odyssey. --Lancashire Evening Post

Part heartbreaking, part whimsical and fully and completely breathtaking. --Blog of a Bookaholic

Lara Williamson writes books that are poignant and heart-warming, books unequivocally and unashamedly about love... The humour comes from Becket's idiosyncratic view of life, and the things he gets up to with little brother Billy, but also from the gap that exists between adults and children s understanding of the world. Becket does find the answers to his questions, and ends the book happier and a bit wiser - readers will too. --LoveReading4Kids

Lara excels at writing stories that walk a fine line between humour and sadness. One minute, you are wiping a sad tear away, the next you're crying with laughter. --Serendipity Reviews

An incredibly emotional read, all because of Lara's perfectly crafted characters, writing and storytelling. A story of friendship, love, loss and so much more, touching on subjects rarely addressed. I am incredibly excited to read more of Lara's work in the future. --BookMonsters

Deals with major issues that could have been overpowering but Williamson manages to get the right touch of humour and sadness so that neither dominates the others... An entertaining read with a serious and absorbing story at its heart. --Books for Keeps
