George never seems to be very lucky. Nothing ever seems to go quite right for him. In fact, George believes that he is the unluckiest boy in the world. When his class is involved in a school project involving growing sunflowers and the production of a play called “James and The Giant Sunflower”, which is to be performed in front of all the parents at the summer fair, things seem to go from bad to worse for George. Will he ever be able to beat Ben – good at everything and always the first with his hand up in class? How does Mr. Greenwood, the school caretaker, get involved in George’s fortunes? Will George’s luck ever change?

Born in Cheshire, but brought up in Kent, Helen returned to her Northern roots to study English Language and Literature at Manchester University. She went on to take a post graduate teaching qualification. After 23 enjoyable and successful years as a primary school teacher and deputy head teacher, Helen was able to take the time and opportunity to follow other interests, including writing. Helen lives with her husband Steve, their two dogs and four chickens close to the Saddleworth Hills of East Lancashire enjoying walking, gardening, crafting and is an active member of her local WI.

    Fantastic book, relatable and encouraging for children of all ages, with a funny twist on a happy ending too, this would make the perfect gift for any child.

  • sarah Mcintyre

    this is a lovely story suitable for children to read themselves or has read to them. A fabulous tale with a lovely ending following a young boy who thinks he is the unluckiest boy he knows.

  • Ian Gerrard

    Entertaining story with a lovely twist at the end. Helen has obviously used her past experiences in the classroom to make the story very realistic. It did remind me of my secondary school where our school caretaker lived on-site in a bungalow on the school grounds. Our grandchildren will love this and so did I!!
