Description of this Book

Even before all this happened I had never been like the other kids. I tried not to be seen. If I climbed a tree or hid among the bins, no one could find me. 'Where's What's His Name?' they'd say...Then, one weekend, I got what I wanted. First, I blended in with things. But on the second day I changed...I mean, really changed...The hilarious story of a boy with an unusual problem, from children's book legend Paul Jennings. Includes fantastic look-and-find colour illustrations...
