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)

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.Read more ›
A good read - and lets face it anything that gets them away from a screen must have merit - but not great.
This book is totally hilarious. I recommend 8 years and older. Get now, and be sure to get his other three totally unfair books! Dont forget, number 5 is coming out soon! GET NOW!!
