Jenny Pearson’s exceptional debut delivers laugh-out-loud calamity, high-stakes adventure, and the warmth of family. Facts are everything to eleven-year-old Freddie Yates: once you know a fact it’s yours to keep. After his grandmother dies and Freddie discovers his biological father might be alive and well in Wales, he decides to follow the facts. Together with his best friends, Ben and Charlie, he sneaks off on the adventure of a lifetime (or at least, the summer holidays) to track down his father. Freddie doesn’t expect any miracles. But when the three unwittingly set off a chain of inexplicable events via an onion-eating competition, a few superhero costumes, and a group of very angry antique thieves, Freddie discovers that some things can’t always be explained—and sometimes what you’re looking for has been with you the whole time. Propulsive and hilarious, The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates is a heartwarming story about the true meaning of family.

When people ask me if I would do anything differently in my journey if I were to do it all again, I tell them I would take more underpants. Facts are everything to Freddie Yates—once you know one, it’s yours to keep. After his grandmother dies, Freddie has to face the facts: his family has now dwindled to just him and his accident-prone stepdad. When Freddie discovers his biological father might be alive and well in Wales, he decides it’s time to get back a family member. Together with his best friends Ben and Charlie, he sneaks off on the adventure of a lifetime (or at least, the summer vacation) to track him down. Freddie doesn’t expect miracles—they’re not real, after all. But as their road trip gets out of hand and the three boys unwittingly set off a chain of hilarious and unlikely events involving an onion-eating competition, stolen superhero costumes, an angry jewel thief, and some very backed-up plumbing, Freddie discovers that some things can’t be explained—and that sometimes what you’re looking for has been with you the whole time. Propulsive and laugh-out-loud funny, The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates is a heartwarming story about the true meaning of family.

WINNER OF THE 2022 BEST LAUGH OUT LOUD BOOK FOR 9-13-YEAR-OLDS Freddie Yates likes facts. Just not the one staring him in the face – that his secret plan is not, in fact, secret. Because Freddie's journey wasn't meant to involve Big Trev and the onion-eating competition or the loo-exploding pear-and-potato turnovers. And Freddie definitely didn't expect to end up, with his two best friends, on national television in a supergirl costume. But journeys never take you where you think they will. And for Freddie, that fact might just have to be enough... The super funny, heart-warming adventure of three boys, one summer holiday, and a few miracles along the way.
