The Marathon by Philippa Cates

The Marathon is a cheeky, but family-friendly satirical short rhyming story accompanied by playful illustrations from our hugely talented artist, Terry Cooper.

The story follows our hero, Runner, as he takes on the gruelling business of training for and running a marathon. Not a natural athlete, and with a weakness for cake and socialising, Runner faces many distractions along the way. But will he complete his challenge?

Echoing the spirit of some of the most popular twenty-first century children'
s picture books, this satirical spoof book is a clever hybrid between adult and children's book, and you don't need to be a runner to enjoy it. It's a fun book for all the family with a slight anarchic twist.

NOW AVAILABLE. Dispatched within 2 business days.
