The Day I Was Erased
Written by Lisa Thompson
Maxwell is permanently in trouble. He’s a total menace to his teachers and big sister, but has a soft side too: he rescued his dog, Monster, from being run over and checks on his elderly neighbour, Reg, after school.
One day, while looking through Reg’s mysterious cabinet of curiosities, Maxwell finds himself erased from his life: it’s as if he’d never been born. At first, being able to walk around without being yelled at is great, but Maxwell starts to miss his old life, and, if he’d never existed, then he wouldn’t have swooped Monster out of the path of that car…
Is there a way to reverse the erasure and save the day once more?
A story of family, friendship and finding your place in the world.
