Thicker Than Water

Paperback

A superbly-crafted take on Of Mice and Men, brilliantly reworked for modern audiences and fraught with all the tension and tragedy of Steinbeck's text. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+

George dreams of an easy life, a little record business, enough money to get by. But it's hard when he has Lennie to look after too. Lennie's not quite right, he's got a way of getting into scrapes, and he doesn't know his own strength. For now, their best option is to hole up with Billy and his dodgy business and hope they can stay long enough, this time, to get some money put by. But wherever Lennie is, trouble is never very far away…Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+
