Summary

I'm Dan Hope and inside my head I keep a list of things I want to come true. For example, I want my sister to go to university at the North Pole and only come back once a year. I want to help Sherlock Holmes solve his most daring mystery yet. I want to be the first 11-year-old to land on the moon. And finally I want my dad to love me.

An enjoyable and touching book.

An interesting narration which can be slightly irritating at times, but generally good. A lovely story for a 10-11 year old to read.
