Felix’s deeply engrossing and fully immersive first-person narrative of homelessness is both illuminating and heartbreaking. An outstanding addition to the inadequate-parent genre.” — Kirkus Reviews, Starred

FESTIVAL BOOK

No Fixed Address

Felix Knuttson, age 12, has a knack for trivia. He aims to put this knowledge to good use on his favourite game show, <em>Who, What, Where, When</em> and help improve his and his mother’s living situation. Winning the cash prize could make everything okay again. But things don’t turn out the way he expects….

<em>No Fixed Address</em> is a touching and funny middle-grade story about family, friendship, and growing up when you’re one step away from homelessness.

Princess Puffybottom … and Darryl

What’s a pampered cat to do once she has to compete for attention with an ill-mannered puppy? <em>Princess Puffybottom … and Darryl </em>is a laugh-a-minute twist on the classic sibling rivalry story that also serves as a refresher on conflict resolution.
