Sam Wu is NOT Afraid of Ghosts

The brilliantly funny and first book in the SAM WU series, starring the bravest scaredy-cat in the world. Sam Wu is NOT a scaredy-cat (except he is). When a trip to the Space Museum goes terrifyingly wrong, Sam begins a mission to prove to the school bully, and all of his friends, that he is a fearless space adventurer.

A truly laugh-out-loud, voice-led and madcap story of ghost hunting, snakes and mischievous pet cats called Butterbutt.

Our Review Panel says...

I enjoyed plenty of laugh-out-loud moments with this book. Its brand of harmless humour is enhanced by the cool design features of its pages and Nathan Reed’s engaging illustrations, making it a text that is well-suited to younger readers who are getting used to enjoying early chapter books and still see the appeal of the visual elements. With so many top new middle grade choices available for Years 5 & 6 at the moment, it is delightful and refreshing to find such an enjoyable new read to recommend to lower KS2…
