Salvatore d’Amato is determined to get a kiss before his birthday — easier said than done. From the bestselling and much-loved Jean Ure. No child is ever ordinary, and certainly not Salvatore d’Amato — or Sally Tomato, as he’s sometimes called. He’s out to get a girl and he has a plan: he’s going to write some Disgusting Ditties — one for each letter of the alphabet, and start some secret body-building, too. That way he’s bound to attract someone. (But he doesn’t want his sister to know his plans…) Jean Ure perfectly captures the lives of ordinary children — their lives, with all their ups and downs, are presented with courage, humour and tenacity. These are special children who any child can relate to and will draw inspiration and hope from their stories of their lives.
