Addison Addley and the Things That Aren't There

Orca Book Publishers | Orca Young Readers


Addison Addley hates math. He hates public speaking too. Actually, he hates anything that involves work, but he only has a couple of weeks to write and memorize his grade five speech. The problem is, he can't think of a single topic. When he finally comes up with an excellent idea for a speech, it almost writes itself, but it's his poor math skills that make speech day unforgettable.

---

"McMillan's story touches on real aspects of grade five, from speech writing to dealing with math fractions, from bullies to stage fright...Readers will enjoy [Addison's] antics and I'm sure that many a student will be able to relate to Addison's take on life."

---

"Addison is a likable character who manages to be both sweet and maddening at the same time...The author does a good job of twisting things at the end of the story."

---

"An excellent read for young children...Young boys will be able to relate to Addison."

---

"McMillan has aptly drawn on her teaching background to create a believable, imaginative boy who loves fishing and video games but is struggling with school...Her word choice and descriptive language blend to create a pleasurable read-aloud story for the classroom."

---

Melody DeFields McMillan is a teacher who lives in Simcoe, Ontario, not far from where she grew up. When she's not writing, she's enjoying all that nature has to offer. Her first book about the irrepressible Addison, Addison Addley and the Things That Aren't There, was nominated for a Silver Birch Award.
