Publisher's Summary

The eagerly awaited new standalone novel from multi-award-winning author and scriptwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce. Find out why it's not easy being green in the hilarious new story from Frank Cottrell Boyce:The Astounding Broccoli Boy!

Rory Rooney likes to be prepared for all eventualities. His favourite book is Don't Be Scared, Be Prepared, and he has memorized every page of it. He could even survive a hippo attack. He knows that just because something is unlikely doesn't mean it won't ever happen....

But Rory isn't prepared when he suddenly and inexplicably turns green. Stuck in an isolation ward in a hospital far from home with two other remarkably green children, Rory's as confused by his new condition as the medics seem to be. 

But what if it's not in their genes,or a virus or something they ate? What if turning green actually means you've turned into a superhero? Rory can't wait to make it past hospital security and discover exactly what his superpower might be....

    Story
    "Funny, fantastic and fabulous!"
    If you could sum up The Astounding Broccoli Boy in three words, what would they be?

    Comical, amusing, outstanding


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Astounding Broccoli Boy?

    When Rory and Tommy-Lee try to rob a bank.


    What does Ewan Goddard bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Amazing accents from Birmingham make the characters sound realistic.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    This film is officially one of your 'five a day.'


    Any additional comments?

    Full of fun. Anyone who has read books by Frank Cottrell Boyce will understand how the the combination of the absurd happinging within the everyday makes this book light-hearted and feel-good from the off.

    "Long, but worth it!"

    An exciting and unpredictable story. Although it was really long we were gripped to the end.
