How Harry Riddles Got Nearly Almost Famous

Author: Simon Mayle Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 10/04/2018

The funniest kid in fiction is back and he's got a lot to SHOUT about! Hi there, So I've joined a band with Jess and this new kid, Kevin, who is pretty annoying but also a REALLY talented guitar player. We've got a good shot at winning the Battle of the Bands competition for our school as long as Kevin doesn't get expelled first. But here's the thing, my dad has this crazy idea to take me, my mum, my EVIL sister and my twin brothers sailing round the world. For TWO years!!!! Swimming with dolphins, and scuba diving would be pretty cool, but how am I meant to reach rock stardom if I'm stuck on a boat in the middle of the ocean? Good luck and have fun. Harry Riddles

The funniest kid in fiction is back! Hi there, My name is Harry Riddles, and I live with my mum, my dad and my EVIL sister Charlotte. But now my mum is having TWINS so either me or Charlotte are gonna lose our bedroom. ALSO, Dad's moaning that I should do more sport and not be just a gamer (which shows what he knows cos I'm actually the BEST gamer World of Zombies has ever seen). But I've joined the school football team to keep him happy although if we win anything it will be a miracle cos we suck. I've written to some stars of the football world to see if they wanna help out, and also a bunch of people who might take Charlotte off our hands - oh and Brad Pitt's wife to see if she wants to adopt a couple more kids, but who knows if they will write back. We'll see. Good luck and have fun. Harry Riddles Follow Harry's hilarious ups and downs told through laugh-out-loud letters, emails, texts and more!
