Adam Kay with illustrator Henry Paker (Hybrid KS2 Schools Event)

Join the record-breaking Adam Kay and Henry Paker, as they take you on a laugh-out-loud journey through their first ever fiction book. This live event will be hosted in the High Street Baptist Church in Tring, and live streamed to schools around the country.

Introducing Dexter Procter – the world’s youngest doctor. It was clear from an early age that Dexter Procter was different. He started speaking at four seconds old. By the age of three, he had 87 A-levels, from Afrikaans to Zoology. And by ten, he was working as a paediatrician at Lilydale General Hospital.

Find out if Dexter will be able to save his job, save the school and find his place in the world? (Spoiler alert: yes.)

Eight classes of children can watch in the venue and the rest will be able to watch the event 'live streamed' from the comfort of their classroom or school hall.
