Author(s): Tristan Bancks; Gus Gordon (Illustrator)
I'm Tom Weekly. If you want to know what went wrong, read this and laugh.
You'll learn the secret of my strangest body part. You'll meet my super-angry grandpa, and hear about my best non-human friend, Rarnald the rat. You'll find out why I've been banned from KidsWorld. But that won't freak you out as much as the story of how Stella Holling tricked me into kissing her.
3 things you'll learn inside-
1. How to climb Mount Everest
2. How to make a backyard theme park
3. How to escape a pirate
