'Hello gorgeous,' Mum said when I woke up. 'What would you like for breakfast? You can have anything you want.' I had cherries, coke, crumpets and raspberry ice cream.

So begins a day in the life of one boy. But it's a day with a difference - a perfect day.

Not only does his dog Muffin come to school, he easily wins the spelling quiz and gets a standing ovation from his classmates.

It is a day like no other - when he can do exactly what he wants! Or is it?
