harrymillerThis was published on 5/11/15.  It tells the story of three lads and one girl who set off one hot summer morning to run from their homes in Newcastle to South Shields – a distance of 13 miles – exactly half a marathon.  Old Harry (now walking with a frame) tells Liam the story of that run that took place many, many years ago….and Liam has just got a place in the junior ‘Great North Run’.  A joyful and uplifting story with full colour illustrations by Salvatore Rubbino.  For readers aged 7 years and older.
