Description of this Book

Have you ever been trapped inside a runaway car? Have you broken a world record? Is there someone in your class who will stop at nothing to kiss you? Have you ever tricked your dog into doing your homework? Or found something seriously disgusting in your food? Have you sold head lice for fun and profit? Or has your mum ever used raspberry and white chocolate muffins as weapons of minor destruction? I'm Tom Weekly and all of these things have happened to me. I've captured them here in stories, jokes, cartoons, quizzes and lists. Believe me, real life is weirder than anything you can make up. 'Like Dahl, Bancks is passionate about inspiring a love of reading in the young by placing fun at the centre of his storytelling.' ANDY GRIFFITHS, author of the Treehouse series
