‘The perfect Christmas story: snow is in the air, (Grandma) doesn’t understand, and one of our greatest heroes is about to step off the screen and tell a little boy the secret of everything. Absolutely gorgeous, achingly beautiful and astonishingly enough, completely true. Once you’ve read this, you really will know the secret of everything.’ – Steven Moffat.

‘Enlarging an anecdote told to him by a friend many years after the event, Paul Magrs has turned a brush with greatness – an autistic boy meets David Bowie – into a poignant and touching story of a life transformed. Through the authentic voice of the young boy, misunderstood and brusquely treated by his self-centred mother, the encounter shows that Bowie was generously gifted with emotional intelligence long before the term was invented.’ – Linda Newbery

‘Waiting for a train
It’s delayed and delayed and delayed
I remembered to read your Bowie story
Now I don’t care about the train
Gave me goose pimples

‘This is my kind of story. It shows kindness in the face of bullying, is rich with a sense of wonder, and it filled my heart with a deep, deep joy.’ – Charles de Lint
