The Lost Homework is a charming picture book from National Literacy Hero Award-winning author Richard O’Neill, with illustrations from Kirsti Beautyman.

Sonny devotes his weekend to helping his neighbours and fellow Travellers with a variety of tasks. He uses many skills, from calculating the amount of fuel needed for a journey, to restoring a caravan. In fact, the only thing he doesn’t do over the weekend is his homework – his workbook is missing! What will his teacher say?

This is a delightful story, which champions the idea that many skills learned at home are as important as those learned at school – a timely message for many children who have been home-schooling in the last year! Richard O’Neill is a sixth generation storyteller, who was brought up in Romani family in the North of England.

Suitable for ages 4–8 / KS1 and KS2

Themes: Traveller communities, Family, School, Music
