Tristan can go from writing the powerful and haunting Two Wolves to the whacky humour of his character Tom Weekly in the ‘My Life’ series with seeming ease . . . This fifth ‘My Life’ book is as laugh out loud funny as the others and the third to include a story written by a young writer . . . My Life and Other Weaponised Muffins is packed full of great images by Gus Gordon, short stories, jokes, cartoons, quizzes and lists ‘by’ character Tom Weekly and includes the idea of selling your head lice for fun and profit and raspberry and white chocolate muffins as weapons of minor destruction.

Like Dahl, Bancks is passionate about inspiring a love of reading in the young by placing fun at the centre of his storytelling.
