Synopsis

Archie's Unbelievably Freaky Week by Andrew Norriss

Archie is an accident waiting to happen. He can't help it. In just one week at school, he is accused of murder, gets trapped in the staff cloakroom without any clothes, and somehow manages to turn himself into a dog. Not to mention the poisonous spider and the Health and Safety Inspector who gets a toilet stuck on his head...Thank goodness Archie's best friend Cyd is always there to sort out the mess.

Reviews

Burgeons with wacky invention, cleverness - and, as I say, a delightful amount of humour. Never getting too silly, or slapstick, it just hits the mark and moves on, forever sprightly, always believable, and surprising to the end. -- John Lloyd The Bookbag A clever, well-written, face-achingly funny follow-up that should be read by all! Scribbler magazine This freaky week is a charming way for youngsters to spend some time. It's a finely-judged success, and on its way to being my favourite title for the under-tens for quite some time. -- John Lloyd The Bookbag Will have you laughing out loud. Large print and a few pictures make this perfect for newly developing readers, and fun for all abilities. -- Debbie 'Primary Times

About the Author

Andrew Norriss

Andrew Norriss was born in 1947, went to Trinity College, Dublin, and then became a school teacher because a woman called Mrs Morrison told him to. In 1982, another woman told him he should be a writer, so he did that instead, partly because of the money, but mostly because it means you can watch movies in the afternoon.

He lives in a thatched cottage in a little Hampshire village with a loving wife and two wonderful children, and life would be pretty near perfect if he could just get rid of the moles on the lawn, and his son didn’t leave marmalade dribbling down the side of the jar so that it stuck on your fingers when you picked it up in the morning.
