The Stuff Happens Series


by Various Authors

Book Cover for the Stuff Happens Series
Stuff Happens is an important new series for boys about everyday challenges. Created by Susannah McFarlane, the series is written by established authors such as authors Tony Wilson, Andrew Daddo, Philip Gwynne, Will Kostakis, Oliver Phommavanh, Scot Gardner, Justin D'Ath and James Roy. Each book features a different character and follows them as they overcome a particular everyday challenge.

Aimed at boys aged between 7 and 11, the Stuff Happens series explores those everyday struggles in life that boys can sometimes be reluctant to express: quarrels with mates, a bad day at school, fear of disappointing mum and dad, rejection and not fitting in.

Stuff Happens. Real-life stories about boys. Suitable for beginner and newly confident readers.
