Marvin's Magnificent Moustache

· James Hewison

About this ebook

An ingenious picture book about the ups and downs of having a magnificent moustache—perfect for children learning to celebrate and embrace what makes them and others unique.

Proud Marvin grows his moustache so long that, one day, he trips on it. Right in front of a crowd. And right into a garbage bin. Marvin’s lovely moustache seems ruined and everybody laughs. He is so embarrassed.

A few days later a gust of wind lifts up his moustache and Marvin along with it. He can fly, until he crashes in his garden and his neighbour laughs at him.

Marvin is delighted about his special new talent, but he doesn’t like people laughing at his moustache. So he only flies where nobody can see. But what happens when he has to choose between keeping his secret and saving a life?

A witty and wise story that brings entertainment and imagination to this essential lesson on the value of diversity and authenticity.
