Gilbert Filbert and His Big MAD Box is the story of one boy's desire to make a difference and help his mother find her smile again. It is a book about a boy, a box and a battle for a penguin but, more than that, it is a tale about families, hope and how to make dreams come true.

Drawing on proven thinking and success strategies used by leading businesses and organisations, this entertaining, accessible and humorous book is designed to show young people the power of having a goal, having a plan and making a difference.

A goal without a plan, they say, is just a wish. This book has been written especially for young people to show them how to set about turning wishes into reality by applying the sorts of planning tools usually only found in big business.

The powerful set of thinking tools included in this book will help young people to develop habits of mind that will last a lifetime. The book can be read on a number of levels:
  • as an amusing story
  • as a method for developing young people's own thinking process
  • as a tool for engaging groups of young people in their thinking
  • all of the above
The book also includes a Gilbert Filbert Big MAD Box which you can cut out, or download and print, together with a finger questions sheet (this will make sense once you have read the book!).

Suitable for young people (aged 11+) to use on their own thinking adventures. Also suitable for parents, teachers or anyone working with teenagers who wants to join the journey.
