Product description

Damian’s new friend wants him to be a hero. But what does that really mean?

Damian’s family are living under witness protection now that his dad, a once powerful gangster, has turned Queen’s evidence. They’ve been moved to a cramped flat in a run-down council estate, and they’ve all had to take on new names. Then Damian – sorry, Finn – meets costumed superhero Star Kid, who wants Finn to join his mission to keep the estate safe from criminals. Soon Finn is forced to ask himself: who is he, really?

A funny, heartfelt novel about friendship and family – and where the limits are for both.

Our August 2022 Ages 9-10 Book of the Month

Our book of the month for children aged 9+ is My Dad is Definitely Not a Crime Lord, by the award-winning author Ben Davis. In this silly story, Damien and his family have gone into witness protection after Dad – a famous gangster – turned Queen’s evidence. Now Damien, whose new name is ‘Finn’, has to get used to life on the council estate without all the luxuries he has been used to.

In a hilarious twist, Damien ends up teaming up with Star Kid who works to protect the estate from bullies. All is going well until one evening they catch Dad, who has once again turned to crime! This is a funny and heartfelt novel about friendship and family – and where the limits are for both. It is a great pick for reluctant readers as the story is silly, funny and engaging throughout.
