Adventures of Wound Man and Shirley, The $20.86 ex GST
$22.95 inc GST
Shirley is a teenage boy with a girl’s name, growing up in suburbia and feeling like the weirdest kid in the school. Nothing makes much sense to him, and his heart belongs to a classmate who barely knows he exists. Wound Man is an unconventional superhero, sprung from the pages of a medieval medical textbook, with an alarming assortment of  weapons sticking out from every part of his body. Wound Man has just moved into a house on Shirley’s street – and he happens to have a vacancy for a teenage sidekick... A funny and touching story by Chris Goode about two unlikely friends and the adventures they share.

Told with humour and bags of charm…  The Adventures of Wound Man and Shirley  tells a familiar tale in a refreshing and imaginative way to leave us amused and moved. –  Whats On Stage
