The leaky story

The leaky Story

By Devon Sillett and Anil Tortop

leaky story


A book sits abandoned on a living room shelf. While the Blossburn family happily gets on with other things like watching TV and playing video games, the book aches to be read.

The longer it sits abandoned, the more it aches. At last the book can’t take it any longer. Slowly it starts to swell. Then it starts to leak!

At first it’s only a small trickle, but eventually the Blossburns can no longer ignore the octopus, crabs and other marine life that are swirling around their suburban home. And when pirates sail out of the book, the family must band together to reclaim their living room.

Can J.J. and his parents find a way to get the characters back in the book? And in the process, will they discover that sometimes books are the best fun of all?

The Leaky Story is an action-packed adventure into the wonderful world of books, the power of the imagination, the art of storytelling and the importance of family.


Oliver aged 5 gave the book 5 stars

Oliver loved this book he thought it was great fun and bright.

he thought it would be awesome if books could bring the adventures to life.

preschool ages 3-5 gave the book 4 stars

the children were engaged throughout the book and all thought the illustrations were bright and fun.

they wanted to know what else could come out of the book

their favourite part was the great battle with he pirates,  after the reading the children played pirates of their own.
