The Other Facts of Life




Ben stared at the TV.

He had never seen anything like it.

Fascinating.

Incredible.

Awful.

He had to do something.

Ben stared at the images on the TV screen half in fascination, half in horror. He had never seen anything like this. It was incredible. It was awful. He needed answers . . .
There are some things Ben doesn't understand, so his dad is sent in to explain the facts of life. But it's the other facts that are worrying Ben and he decides to find his own answers. He's deadly serious – and the results are very, very funny.
The story of one boy's stand for a better world and a slightly better family.
