"Exciting News! Mr Fullerman announces that class 5F are going on an 'Activity Break'! Which should be fun. As long as I don't get stuck in a group with anyone who snores or worse still with . . . Marcus Meldrew. Delia is already threatening to paint my room funny colours while I'm away. I just hope the only surprise I have when I get home is the new pet that I hear Mum and Dad talking about.
The 5th amazing instalment in this series which has won multiple awards including the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. Each book takes the form of Tom's battered homework diary, crammed with his doodles and stories, and is entertaining and accessible stuff for both boys and girls. Ages: 9+
