Life of Riley - Beginner's Luck
Published by Scholastic
Riley is cursed. No, really! After a fairground incident - TOTALLY not his fault - bad luck follows Riley everywhere, causing disaster after disaster. It's got so bad that no one wants to go near Riley, including his teachers! But when new student Brad Chicago shows up, Riley quickly realises that Brad is the human equivalent of a good luck charm.
Life of Riley: Beginner's Luck, by Simon James Green and illustrated by Aleksei Bitskoff is shortlisted for The 2021 Blue Peter Book Award.
