Summary

Davey is the new boy and Sam can't stand him. He thinks that Davey is a first-class, grade A, top-of-the-dung-heap moron.

But when the two are thrown together, Sam discovers that Davey's eccentric way of looking at the world makes life a lot more exciting. Until something terrible happens...

A beautiful, funny and sad story, told completely in verse.

Witty, moving, excellent

A stunning piece which surprised me: I don't normally like poetry. Beautifully written and perfect for casual listening or as a great class read.
