Second Childhood




Mark and his friends discover they've lived before. Not only that – they were Famous and Important People.

Which is lots of fun.

At first.

'If you don't wake up to yourself, Smalley,' Mr Cruickshank said, 'do you know what you're going to end up as?'
'Sheep's poop, sir,' said Mark. Mark's father has always wanted him to be a Somebody. But unless Mark picks up at school, it looks like sheep's poop is where he's heading. Then Mark and his friends discover they've lived before. Not only that – they were Famous and Important People! A funny, fast-moving story about the ups and downs of being a Somebody.
