The boy with two heads – Andy Mulligan




The boy with two heads is the new book by Andy Mulligan (author of the very popular Trash ).Richard wakes one morning with seemingly normal sore throat – very quickly a lump appears. Over the the next day a second head emerges and Rikki arrives!

Richard and Rikki have very different personalities and but they try to carry on as normally as possible. But how can an eleven old boy, with two heads  live a normal life? The challenges are immense and varied – from finding a school uniform to playing football to going on school camp – to surviving psychiatric analyses……

The story can be read on many levels – and this is it’s strength. It can be read as part comedy part horror; it deals with isolation and loss; how families cope in difficult situations; what defines a friend – but also as an insight into just how far science and scientists are prepared to go in the name of progress and discovery.
