Reviews

This story is incredibly funny - hilarious in fact and a laugh out loud book throughout. From reading the first page I decided to read the whole story to my seven-year-old son who had just returned himself from a school residential trip. Without any exaggeration he was rolling on the floor with laughter and tears cascading down his cheek within the first two minutes - I have never read a book to him which had quite this effect The Bookbag Side-splitting escapades from the master of revels... Lancashire Evening Post This book is a non-stop comical disaster ride. Ideal for kids who find bodily functions, scabs, bogeys and toilet humour hilarious Booktrust I have been searching for a story to read to my class on our next 5 day residential and The Chicken Nugget Ambush will be my book of choice as I know children will absolutely love it The Bookbag

About the Author

Mark Lowery

The youngest of four children, Mark Lowery was born in North Wales in 1979 and grew up in Preston, Lancs. Although he maintains that his upper body is of average size, many people have suggested that he has an unusually large head and stumpy legs.

His lifelong dream of playing for Everton was cruelly shattered at 18, when he realised that he was actually useless at football. Following this bombshell, he trained to become a primary school teacher. He denies that this was only so that he could be taller than the majority of people in his workplace.

Following a few years of teaching in Leeds, he studied for an MA in Writing for Children at the University of Winchester. After graduating he taught at schools in Ipswich and Italy, whilst writing in his spare time. He currently works part-time at a school in Cambridge. His claims that he is “the staff-room eye-candy” have been strenuously ridiculed by all those who work alongside him.

Mark is a fluent speaker of terrible Italian. He enjoys playing the guitar, football, swimming, snowboarding, reading and running around. However, as a father of two small humans, he has recently put some of these interests on hold in favour of nappy-changing and baby-entertaining. He has a real-life girlfriend who definitely exists, and his favourite meal is steak pie, mash and beans.

Socks Are Not Enough is his first novel. It deals with what Mark considers to be two of the most pressing issues of the twenty-first century – parental nudity and custard cream addiction. It is his sincere hope that this book will in some way reach out to the sufferers of these terrible afflictions.

Pants Are Everything, Mark’s second book, is published July 2013, published by Scholastic Children’s Books.
