The Avengers Teen Reading Group enjoyed the Bubble Wrap Boy by Phil Earle

The artistic side of 'The Avengers Teen Reading Group' at Egham Library came out on Tuesday 10 May 2016. The group enjoyed discussing 'The Bubble Wrap Boy' by Phil Earle and it was encouraging to see that they were able to draw out and explore the main themes of the book: family relations, teenage bullying, disability, personal identity and confidence.
The members of the group said that they were able to identify with the central character - Charlie- a teenage boy who becomes a skateboard ace despite the disapproval of his mother and the bullies at the skate park and they used their artistic flair to create a model of Charlie - the 'Bubble Wrap Boy' - to display in the children's area of the library along with their reviews of the book. 

The group said the book showed them the importance of following your dreams and never giving up!
