"There is a moral here for any parent who frets about a child's progress at school . . . Children who read it won't be turned into hostile monsters; they'll chortle away, feel better about themselves and have a lot of jokes to tell you" (The Sunday Times)
"Johnson's comic romp through a miserable school year in the life of almost 13-year-old Louis touches all the real bases of adolescent boys' lives: girls, parents, TV, comedy" (TES)
"Johnson addresses big issues in a frank manner and with a light touch resulting in a book that both children and parents should read" (Wendy Cooling Junior Education)
"Written with humour and plenty of attitude, this witty book firmly puts the power in the hands of the children" (Junior)
A lively, funny, contemporary tale of a boy who is fed up with his hyper-competitive parents.See all Product Description

This book is written as Louis' diary. He wants to be a comedian and so throws in the odd corny joke or two but the diary entries themselves are really funny - letting you know all the strange things his parents have been doing. This is one of those books that you pick up and don't put down until you have finished. Probably best for ages 8-12 (although older people may enjoy it too), both boys and girls and particularly anyone feeling annoyed with their parents!
A really comic read, one of those books that you pick up and can't EVER put down. I would be up all night reading this, and I couldn't help it when I came to laughing at how hilarious the whole plot was. I read this 3 years ago... I am now 11 and I can still remember what laughs were crammed into this book. It shows truth in depth and Louis whom is the main character isn't afraid to notify his emotions to us.
The story is based on Louis's story, he has presently moved to Swotsville and he loathes the whole place, his school is a calamity and he repulses the tow he lives in and all of the people who dwell in it... How is he ever going to cope?
With continuing his diary entries, you as the reader will be able to highlight his hopes and dreams gradually slipping downhill into his worst nightmare.
This book is fab-u-lous yes indeed.
It's funny, humorous and emotional (in a way).
I would highly recommend it but the training program doesn't work for me.
