Flynn Flies High

Flynn often misses school. He doesn't dress like the other children. And everyone laughs at him... except Jack. But when the children visit the circus, they could be in for a surprise...

The idea behind the book

I love meeting travelling children when I go into schools. They can do so many things that I can’t like cooking roast beef beside the road! Flynn showed me that he could back flip, front flip, side flip and flip all over because he was an acrobat in a circus. He didn’t have many friends though because he was always moving around. Everytime he came back to the school that I was at though, Jack, was waiting for him – he was a true friend! True story!
