How Harry Riddles Totally Went Wild by Simon Mayle

The funniest kid in fiction aka SHOUTYKID is back and has more to shout about than ever! When he's packed off on a school trip to 'Adventure Camp' for half term Harry is less than thrilled. He'd planned to spend his holiday shooting zombies, not kayaking, abseiling and perfecting his archery skills! Even worse than all the outdoor activities, Harry's been put in a dorm with his arch-nemesis Ed Bigstock!!! And if Ed finds out Harry's deepest secret - that he's afraid of the dark - he'll have a whole lot more to deal with...Follow Harry's hilarious ups and downs told through laugh-out-loud letters, emails, texts and more!


Totally awesome...the trials of Harry Riddles life are laugh out loud funny. I could not stop laughing. Go out and grab a copy you won't be disappointed. Leia, age 10 If you like Diary of a Wimpy Kid or Tom Gates you will like this book... it's really funny and it made me laugh. Isaac , age 8 Unlike any book I've ever read. I loved it! Sam, age 10 Awesome, epic, funny and entertaining. I love the way the book is written in the form of letters and emails and texts. I hope that the author writes lots more adventures for Harry. William, age 9
