Review: My Life and other stuff I made up

Are you ready to laugh? Yes? Good. Because you won't be able to help yourself once you open this cover.

Tom Weekly loves to write and draw, so he puts together lots of short stories and drawings and other crazy stuff that comes to his imagination.

With a passion for funny stuff, the big questions (like, why do dogs eat poo?), lists and quirky captions, Tom is kind of weird - but in a good way. And a bit of a gross way, too.

Boys will love this book. Fans of Griffiths, Gleitzman and Jennings will be thrilled to have this book in their collection.

Author Bancks doesn't skip a beat as he writes from his character Tom's perspective, and illustrator Gordon adds his usual funny and clever drawings to it all.

What a great book.
