Format: Paperback

A nail-biting - no, make that toe-biting - thrill ride through one boy's life.

Have you ever been kissed by a dog? Ever had to eat Vegemite off your sister's big toe? Have you had a job delivering teeth? Has a bloodthirsty magpie ever been out to get you? Ever woken up to discover that everything hovers? And have you eaten 67 hot dogs in ten minutes? I have. I'm Tom Weekly. This book is full of my stories, jokes, cartoon characters, ideas for theme park rides and other stuff I've made up. It's where I pour out whatever's inside my head. It gets a bit weird sometimes but that's how I roll.

 

 

 

‘Author Bancks doesn't skip a beat as he writes from his character Tom's perspective, and illustrator Gordon adds his usual funny and clever drawings to it all. What a great book.’ Kids Book Review

'Delightful and funny. Bancks has beautifully captured the essence of boyhood. Tom is a typical 21st-century schoolboy, following in the fine tradition of Ginger Meggs.' Good Reading Magazine

'A serious dose of pant-wetting, cringe-worthy short stories and we love 'em!' DMag
