Natural Born Loser

Natural Born Loser is a warm and fun, and at its heart a beautiful story of a boy who thinks little of his abilities. Combine this with a revolving door or Principals at his uninspiring school, some mean bullymons and chaos ensues.

Phommanvanh writes his characters with such joy and optimism that even the antagonists are not entirely unlikeable. It's an important book for kids in late primary school as the characters tackle friendship, bullies and self-worth.

I love the diversity of characters, and how students of all shapes, sizes and economic status will be able to see themselves.

A wonderful, joyful book!
