I am So Over Being a Loser by Jim Smith

The third book in this funny madcap must-read series for 7+ boys and girls. If you liked The Diary of a Wimpy Kid, you'll love this! The second book in the series, I am still not a Loser, won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2013!‘My mum’s embarrassing enough just being my mum, but now she’s won The Voice of Feeko’s competition it’s even worse.’ Barry’s mum has become a bit of celebrity, and now he can’t go anywhere without seeing a poster of her eating a chocolate digestive or wiggling her bum in a pair of jeans. It’s so annoy-embarrassing, and everyone at school is making fun of him. But you can’t keep Barry down for long . . . With the help of his napkin collection, new girl Nancy Verkenwerken and a snail called Snailypoos, Barry is determined to prove once and for all that he is not a loser. Other books in the series are I Am Not a Loser and I Am Still Not a Loser.


'Hugely enjoyable, surreal chaos ... The review of the eight-year-old boy in our house who devoured it in two days? Can I keep it to give to a friend? Best recommendation you can get' Observer

I laughed so much, I thought I was going to burst Finbar, aged 6

'Twice as good as my other favourite book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid' Ben, aged 7
