We at Madeleine Milburn Agency are thrilled to announce that The Boy Who Sailed the Ocean in an Armchair by Lara Williamson has been included in Booktrust’s annual Bookbuzz list


The Bookbuzz list is created for Year 7 and 8 students every year to encourage reading as a pastime. Books are selected which appeal to readers of all reading levels and range across various genres. The list aims to support books which allow students to discover new worlds and exciting ways to utilize their own limitless imaginations. We are honoured to be included in any program which seeks to inspire young readers, and are proud to see Lara Williamson alongside such legends as Neil Gaiman and Michael Morpurgo.


The Bookbuzz list is endorsed by over 250 Secondary Schools across England, where featured books are made available to scores of enthusiastic readers. It is exciting to think that one of our books will be read by such a large and diverse group of emerging thinkers—some of whom may be future writers themselves.


There’s buzzing in the air, and we at Madeleine Milburn are happy to hear it!
