It’s not easy to be an underachiever in a family with three brilliant older brothers who are sporty, arty and just simply -  clever. Bertie, the other brother tries his hardest to match them but it takes a wise teacher to show him there are other (and maybe far more satisfying) ways of being brilliant. A ‘moral’ tale but a very palatable one and a story that reads aloud well and leads to lots of discussion and many spin offs.  .
