Synopsis

The Revenge Files of Alistair Fury: Tough Turkey by Jamie Rix

Alistair Fury is out for revenge. No more running errands. No more being called 'Alice'! It's payback time for his embarrassing mum, his bone-idle dad, and his constantly teasing older brother and sister. Only Alistair's two best friends - and this, his private diary - share his secrets. Culminating in a scene involving a snake, a toupee and a live TV broadcast, Alistair tries to wreak spectacular revenge but it doesn't exactly go according to plan ...In lively and accessible diary form, this is a story of family life at its funniest, packed with schoolboy humour.

Jilts from random thought to comic memory Junior Hilarious Reading Evening Post Accompanied by fun illustrations throughout, this series is a real find as a strong male narrator is a rare thing indeed writeaway.org.uk
