I'm Tom Weekly. If my life is an exploding chicken, this book is my attempt to glue it back together.

I have a few confessions. I’ve done a runner from the dentist. I’m petrified of clowns. Giant headlice tried to eat me. A lost sock nearly killed me. And you’re not going to believe this, but I was attacked by Library Ninjas when
my book was five years overdue. Let my life be a warning to you.

Plus, how to get famous by:
1. Clapping
2. Collecting scabs
3. Knitting

Reviews

This is a hilarious novel aimed at and highly recommended for boys aged 9+. Each chapter is a short story in itself so even the most reluctant readers will find themselves engaged in each descriptive and 'giggle' moment!

Tristan’s My Life books should come with a warning about snorting aloud. Tom Weeks is back with his brand of bizarre daily life to make readers laugh out loud ... All in all, another hit for those readers who want the wacky side of life delivered up to them complete with scabs. Highly recommended for kids from around 8 years upwards.
