Our mother had a dark heart feeling. Lenny's younger brother has a rare form of gigantism and while Lenny's fiercely protective, it isn't always easy being the sister of 'the giant'. A book about finding good in the bad that will break your heart while raising your spirits in the way that only a classic novel can.

Lenny, small and sharp, has a younger brother Davey who won't stop growing - and at seven is as tall as a man. Raised by their mother, they have food and a roof over their heads, but not much else.

The bright spot every week is the arrival of the latest issue of the Burrell's Build-It-at-Home Encyclopedia. Through the encyclopedia, Lenny and Davey experience the wonders of the world - beetles, birds, quasars, quartz - and dream about a life of freedom and adventure. But as Davey's health deteriorates, Lenny realises that some wonders can't be named.

As Davey would say 'Holy Batman'. I am only just beginning to learn about the Spink family, but I am already captivated. The story follows Lenny, her younger, (but much bigger) brother Davey and their single mum who was 'made entirely of worries'. We follow the family as they receive a gift of build it at home encyclopedia's, that in their world of 'dark heart feelings' is somewhere to escape. - Kylie (QBD)

This book is beautifully written. It shows the love between a sister and brother and their love of knowledge. When her younger brother is diagnosed with tumors, the children turn to their love of reading and learning when they receive a encyclopedia to keep them entertained through hardship. Karen Foxlee is an amazing author with a talent for writing kids books. This is worth the read. - Louise (QBD)
