LoveReading View on How Harry Riddles Got Nearly Almost Famous

You’ve got to love Harry Riddles. A boy who faced with the challenge of the Aqualand Kamikaze slide emails Alan Eustace, holder of the world record for free-falling from space, for advice! Harry’s life is a series of challenges but he’s resolutely optimistic: now playing the drums in a band, and worrying that a fellow band-member is making moves on girlfriend Jessica, he’s still happy to email Michael Eavis for a booking! Harry’s good humour is infectious and his life, as described in his emails, letters and messages, provides endless opportunities for humour. Nikalas Catlow’s black and white illustrations are extra fun and these satisfyingly chunky books are quick and cheery reads.Andrea Reece

How Harry Riddles Got Nearly Almost Famous Synopsis

The funniest kid in fiction is back and he's got a lot to SHOUT about! Hi there, My name is Harry Riddles, and I live with my mum, my dad, my EVIL sister and my twin baby brothers in our house in Cornwall. But if my dad has his way we might not live here much longer. He's got this crazy idea to take us all sailing round the world for like, two years! I'm not sure about it, I guess the swimming with dolphins, learning to scuba dive and climbing volcanoes would be pretty cool but how am I meant to win the school Battle of the Bands competition and get Jess to go out with me if I'm stuck on a boat in the middle of the ocean? I've written to a load of famous people who might be able to help me sort out my problems 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! The third book in this hilarious middle-grade series.
