Book Description

1 Sep 2011 The World of Norm (Book 1)

Why on earth did Norm's family have to move, anyway? In their old house he'd never tried to pee in anything other than a toilet. And when Norm is in bed, he's kept awake by his dad snoring like a constipated rhinoceros!

Will life ever get less unfair for Norm?

An award-winning, laugh-out-loud series for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and David Walliams.

Review

Fans of Jeff Kinney will not be disappointed. (Books for Keeps)

If you like the Wimpy Kid books, you'll love The World of Norm! (Julia Eccleshare) (lovereading.co.uk)

I thought this book was brilliant because it is very clever and descriptive. It's completely hilarious and I loved the cartoon-style drawings, which were very funny. It's a great book for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and it gets a definite 5/5 (First News)

Cheery romp... Great fun. (Bournemouth Daily Echo)

A kids' bestseller worthy of its popularity. (Edinburgh Evening News)

Funny and heart-warming, a brilliant read that makes you laugh out loud. (parentsintouch.co.uk)

The World of Norm is an enjoyable, laugh out loud novel, which deals with serious issues and delivers an important moral message in an easy to read format. Jamie 9 (Dundee Courier)

Book Description

Norman knew it was going to be one of those days when he woke up and found himself about to pee in his dad's wardrobe.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'World of Norm: May Contain Nuts' 10 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback
When Harry Hill is quoted on the front of a book saying its `Hilarious Stuff!' it's fair to say most people will be expecting a laugh out loud, highly amusing romp of a novel. Does `The World of Norm' deliver the bellyaches and giggles you would expect? You bet it does! From the opening chapter where we meet Norm about to pee in his Dad's wardrobe this is indeed `Hilarious stuff!'

Norm is a 12 year old boy in the mould of Harry Enfield's `Kevin the Teenager.' He's just recently moved house, has two extremely annoying younger brothers and is broke. Life according to Norm is `just so unfair'. As we follow Norm's quest to `pimp up his bike' we are entertained by the many comical scenes and situations he ends up in.

Jonathan Meres has captured the feelings and motivations of adolescent boys superbly. Norm is completely believable and almost annoyingly life like. At times you feel almost as frustrated as Norms Mum and Dad as he once again expresses an amazing brand of teenage selfishness or stupidity! However you can't stay angry with Norm for long because before too long you know that once again there will be another genuine laugh out loud scene.

The cast of characters in the book all contribute to the comedy contained within the book. Mums addiction to shopping channels, Dad's pulsating angry vein, and Grandpa's trips to the bookmakers all provide the reader with funny moments. Mere's also makes reference to modern technology and current celebrities meaning the book feels fresh and modern. The book is also enhanced enormously by Donough O'Malley's illustrations. The book is full of them, almost one a page and they very much add to the humour of the book.

Without a doubt this is an amusing and funny book but it does also touch on a more serious issue.
