Product description

Review

The predicaments of Michael, the 14-year-old hero of Socks Are Not Enough by Mark Lowery, are similar to those of Adrian Mole, although Mole's parents never turned to naturism and life modelling, and he did not have to suffer Dealing With Feelings sessions or the attentions of an unbearably trendy child psychologist. Fortunately for the reader, the Dealing With Feelings curriculum requires Michael to record his paralysing embarrassment at his elders and his suffering at the hands of his cruel older brother and bullying swimming tutor. Mole can sleep easy in his cult hero's bed, but Michael gives us many a chuckle, a true sense of the misery of a puny teenage boy and cause for admiration at the way he handles his problems better than the professionals. --The Observer

A clever, funny, serious book --Michael Rosen

Laugh-out-loud funny --Booktrust
