A comical cautionary tale from award-winning author Vivian French, brought to life by the instantly recognisable inky artwork of illustration legend Korky Paul.
Leroy Jones is a very ordinary boy blessed with a truly ridiculous name – one that he is determined to keep hidden from everyone. But when he is paired with the bossy Amy Strundle for a project, she’s set to be a thorn in his side and wants everyone to know his secret. Can Leroy find a way to get his revenge and is it really a dish best served cold?
Hilarious school-based drama from a top-notch pairing.
