The Boy Who Made the World Disappear

Following the breakout success of his instant festive classic, The Night I Met Father Christmas, get ready for the brilliant new novel from comedian, actor and bestselling author, Ben Miller!

'Stories are often about a good person who does a Bad Thing, and this is no exception...'

Harrison tries his best to be good. He doesn't steal, he always shares with his sister and he never cheats at board games, but Harrison also has a BIG flaw ... He can't control his temper!

So when he's given a black hole instead of a balloon at a party, Harrison jumps at the chance to get rid of everything that makes him cross. But when it's not just things he hates that are disappearing into the black hole but things he loves, too, Harrison starts to realise that sometimes you should be careful what you wish for...

An out-of-this-world adventure about twists of fate, time travel and troublesome black holes, Ben Miller 's stunning storytelling is brought to life with beautiful illustrations from emerging talent Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini.
