Featuring boxing action, surprising plot twists, compelling characters and an inspiring boy-hero, this funny and heart-warming show is guaranteed to pack a punch – for children aged 5+ and their grown-ups.
If you liked Roald Dahl’s Danny Champion of the World, the books of Jacqueline Wilson and the Rocky Movies, then you’ll love this ‘edge-of-your-seat storytelling’ (Manchester Libraries).
On the surface it’s a simple adventure story, centered around shy twelve-year-old Alfie. But it’s also about love, loss, family and learning how to fight for what you want.
