If he can't do that, how can he be a proper big brother to the new baby his two dads are hoping to adopt? Winner of the Wales Book of the Year People's Choice Award!

Lee Newbery gives us an enchanting fantasy adventure as warm as a firefox's tail. Heart and humour abound in this fun, fast-paced story of how a boy finds inner strength by helping a magical creature. A joyous gem!' Lesley Parr, author of The Valley of Lost SecretsOstensibly it’s the story of a little boy, Charlie, who wants to be more brave. He can’t stand up to his bullies and wants to be able to look after the new sibling his parents are preparing for. This article explains how to install Firefox on Windows, either with a simple online installer from Mozilla, or from the Microsoft Store. I've seen The Last Firefox described as Pokémon meets E.T. - and that's exactly how this enchanting middle grade adventure felt to me! Lee Newbery's tale of a sweet-but-insecure schoolboy finding his own inner fire when he's tasked with taking care of an adorable, magical troublemaker (who just happens to be The Last Firefox) is a huge-hearted and often hilarious romp reminiscent of the best Amblin adventure movies of my own childhood.

The fantasy and reality strands of this funny, heart-warming adventure provide wonderful contrasts. The genuinely scary beast is a constant, looming presence but the practicalities of hiding a flammable creature at school bring things right down to earth. This is the book equivalent of sitting wrapped in a duvet eating chocolate. It is simply delightful and while being an exciting adventure it also looks at finding your feet and the inner courage you need to get through. Author Lee Newbery wrote this story for his son, so that his son could see himself in a story. Newbery wanted a story where the child is adopted (and has two dads) but without the family set-up being the main focus of the story. His aim has been entirely achieved. Recently closed tabs now persist between sessions that don't have automatic session restore enabled. Manually restoring a previous session will continue to reopen any previously open tabs or windows. I described this as “a good bowl of soup, where every flavour is just right” and I still feel this way, the characterisation is strong, the storyline is brilliant. Most readers can empathise with the anxieties of childhood. Charlie is on the cusp of a new world – he’s about to start high school and his dads plan to adopt another child and he doesn’t know if he’s confident enough to be an older brother (this isn’t forgetting his bullies, who reminded me of Bulk & Skull and I wouldn’t have mind seeing chased by geese) – when someone from another world arrives and Charlie finds himself caring for Cadno, the last firefox of the book’s title.

Note: Charlie and his friends take a life-threatening risk on a railway line. Parents/teachers may wish to discuss this with readers. Charlie Challinor has recently become the guardian of a furry fox cub called Cadno. But Cadno isn’t just any fox; he’s a firefox! And the only one of his kind. An evil hunter from another world is looking for Cadno, and so it’s up to Charlie to be brave and protect his new friend…

The pre-alpha version for power users who like to hunt crashes and test new features as they’re coded. If you want to keep your Firefox up to date, with all the latest features and updates, you'll need to upgrade your computer's operating system. This was a really fun book to read, the illustrations were great and added an extra sprinkle of enjoyment to the reading experience.

I really enjoyed reading Charlie's story, it was exactly the kind of story I needed at this age as he was so very much like me. I was also the quiet one at school, who was bullied relentlessly, largely for being the 'weird' quiet one. It was so good to see Charlie learn to stand up proud, and to listen to his inner fire rather than the voices of the petty boys with nothing better to do. I know how much it would have meant to me to read this as a youngster, and so I'm sure it'll do wonders for readers in similar positions. I have to do my best not to just gush for the whole review of The Last Firefox by debut author Lee Newbery. Let’s start by the good bits, shall we? First of all, it’s an illustrated book, which by default makes it a hundred times better than a regular book with no pictures in it. And the illustrations were just so cute, I loved them, especially those of Cadno being all puppy like and adorable. It is also the first — if I remember correctly — book by a Welsh author set in Wales that I’ve ever read, and that alone was a plus factor for me. I really loved this, for the friendships, the dads are just the best, and of course the firefox named Cadno!!! On a personal note, as a same sex adopter of two children, the final layer is the way that a child with two dads, who are adopting again, is handled deftly so that a child with two dads will feel seen, a child with a mum and a dad will be educated on our normalcy (without realising), and a child who is realising they’re different will be able to see that they can have a loving family when they’re older. It will also reassure adopted children if they are getting a sibling.

Jenny Pearson, author of The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates Charlie is a young boy who spends his time hanging out with his two friends. When his dads tell him that they are planning on adopting another chid, on the surface he's thrilled but internally he's worried that he's not brave enough or strong enough to be a big brother. Enter the lovely firefox Cadno!
