The Boy Who Made the World Disappear

From the author of the bestselling The Day I Fell Into a Fairytale

Step into a world of wonder with the fastest-growing UK children's fiction author, Ben Miller, and join Harrison on a magical adventure.  

Harrison tries his best to be good. He doesn’t steal, he always shares with his sister and he never cheats at board games, but Harrison also has a BIG flaw … He can't control his temper!

So when he’s given a black hole instead of a balloon at a party, Harrison jumps at the chance to get rid of everything that makes him cross. But when it’s not just things he hates that are disappearing into the black hole but things he loves, too, Harrison starts to realise that sometimes you should be careful what you wish for...

An out-of-this-world adventure about twists of fate, time travel and families, Ben Miller's warm and funny storytelling is brought to life with beautiful illustrations from Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini.
