The Boy in the Jam Jar: A Bloomsbury Reader: Lime Book Band
A powerful and personal story from Joyce Dunbar about what it's like to experience hearing difficulties.
'Joyce Dunbar is one of the best writers for children today.' (The Guardian)
Dylan can't hear as well as he used to be able to and he doesn't want to be different from his friends - he wants things to go back to the way they used to be. As his hearing gets worse he becomes more and more isolated from his friends. Luckily his dog Pluto is there to keep him down to earth... This heartwarming story from Joyce Dunbar has beautiful black-and-white illustrations by John Shelley and is perfect for children who are developing as readers.
