Book Description

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.

Illustrated by Gus Gordon

      I, Nana bought this book for my grandchild. He got such a surprise when it arrived in the mail. He had not heard of the book before. He loved reading the book. He also discovered the book was signed, so guess what, He tells me 'I am never going to part with it.' He Can't wait for another surprise, hope it's soon.

      "A sort of Aussie tall-tale version of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid". . . . A good choice for kids drawn to the upside down and out-and-out disgusting, and they will also learn a bit about Australian culture along the way." --"Booklist "
