Boris Johnson: Sam and the Firefly by P. D. Eastman

Boris Johnson, former Mayor of London, chooses Sam and the Firefly by P. D. Eastman

“My Dad is Top Dad because he helped me to read. And when you’re four reading is a lot trickier than you think it is, and so I was grateful. The text in question was called Sam and the Firefly, and it’s a thumping good read.”

Sam, the owl, has fun playing with Gus, the firefly, at night and teaches him to write words in the sky until Gus begins to make mischief with his light causing cars to crash, movies to be free, and hot dogs to be cold.
