iVisit.... Kid Normal

THSH and Foyles are proud to welcome Radio 1 stars Greg James and Chris Smith, as they present their debut children's book, Kid Normal.

Greg James is a familiar voice and face on both radio and TV. He’s the host of Radio 1’s Drivetime show, named Best Entertainment Production at the 2016 ARIA Awards where the judges described it as ‘a joyous listen'. Chris Smith is a not only a key part of the success of Greg’s show but an award-winning journalist and broadcaster in his own right.

Kid Normal tells the story of Murph Cooper. When he rocks up to his new school several weeks into the beginning of term, he can't help but feel a bit out of his depth. And it's not because he's worried about where to sit, and making friends, and fitting in, or not knowing where the loos are. It's because his mum has enrolled him at a school for superheroes by mistake…

Unlike his fellow students, who can all control the weather or fly or conjure tiny horses from thin air, Murph has no special abilities whatsoever. But just because you don't have superpowers, it doesn't mean you can't save the day. Let’s hope Murph realises that, and quick – because not far away is a great big bad guy who is half man and half wasp, and his mind is abuzz with evil plans.

Please note that your ticket will also entitle you to a copy of the book, Kid Normal, which can be collected from the Foyles stand on the day of the event, or from Foyles, Grand Central Birmingham for up to 14 days after the event.
