Up to Something

USD $17.99 Tax Included

One day, Dad invites Billy into his shed to build something, but Billy soon finds out that he is only allowed to watch. As Dad becomes engrossed in his project, Billy takes Dad’s off-cuts and other items from around the yard and starts to copy what his Dad is building. When they reveal their creations, Dad discovers that Billy has more talents than his dad had ever imagined! Up to Something  explores the father–son relationship, and the satisfaction to be gained from making things ourselves.

Best Weekend in the Daily Telegraph – May 4
“This delightful book is at face value about a father and son building a billy cart together – but more deeply it is about how most children have a creativity and ability that is under estimated by the adults around them”
