The Incredible Record Smashers is a laugh-out-loud, record smashing adventure packed with a whole lot of heart. Lucy is a fixer of broken things. But there’s one thing she can’t fix and that’s her unhappy mum. Until she comes up with an INCREDIBLE plan. Along with her best friend, Sandesh, Lucy is going to SMASH a world record and solve all her Mum’s problems.

Unfortunately, breaking a world record when watermelons, kumquats, two baddies and a 30cm shatter-resistant school ruler are involved isn’t quite as easy as Lucy thought!

One of the juiciest ideas for a story you’ve ever seen and super-miraculously Jenny Pearson makes it every bit as funny and tender as it could ever be. ― Frank Cottrell-Boyce, author of Runaway Robot



Jenny Pearson has been awarded with six mugs, one fridge magnet, one wall plaque and numerous cards for her role as ‘Best Teacher in the World’.

When she is not busy being inspirational in the classroom, she would like nothing more than to relax with her two young boys, but she can’t as they view her as a human climbing frame.

She lives in the North East of England and her neighbours include four alpaca, three peacocks, two pigs, one horse, two dogs, two noisy cockerels and many many ducks and chickens, all of which create far less mess than her husband and children.
