Spaceman John the (Nearly) Bold by Laura Ellen Anderson
'My name is JOHN SMITH. Dad says with a name like John Smith no one will EVER make fun of you. Mum says I'm 'one in a MILLION'. But just because I got what my sister calls 'the most BORING name in the history of names..,.' do not judge a book by its cover. My life is ANYTHING but boring! But here's this thing you should know: I have this massive, massive, MASSIVE secret. I can travel into other worlds and go on AMAZING adventures. Granddad was an adventurer too. It's this big thing we share. Granddad says we're members of something called the John Smith Club. He says you don't have to have a fancy name to have a big adventure - just because you sound like a NOBODY you might be a SOMEBODY. Granddad says if you meet somebody called John Smith, he might have this BIG secret too. I joined the John Smith Club on my last birthday and since then I've been on all kinds of incredible escapades. So now you know.'
