LoveReading View on Super Creepy Camp

In a nutshell: enormously funny story about boy compelled to tell the truth

Ever since his encounter with an old lady who might just have been a witch, Beaky Malone has been unable to speak anything but the truth – a difficult situation for anyone, but a disaster for a born fibber like Beaky. In this episode he’s chosen to represent the school in a competition that involves camping overnight; with school bully Wayne also on the team, a boy who has good reason to hate him, Beaky is understandably nervous. As ever the action is fast and very, very funny, but it’s surprising how many truths Barry Hutchison can smuggle into the story, about people, relationships, and how lies might just make the world go round. ~ Andrea Reece

There are more laughs, along with canny insight into ordinary life in My Brother is a Superhero by David Solomons, or The Person Controller  and The Parent Agency by David Baddiel.

Super Creepy Camp Synopsis

When Beaky, Theo and Wayne are chosen to take part in the annual inter-schools contest with Foxley Hill it can mean only one thing for Beaky ...trouble. The contest includes a debate, a quiz and an overnight team-building exercise. With Wayne determined that their team be crowned the victor, Beaky's only hope is to keep his mouth firmly shut ...unfortunately his brain has other ideas. Cue chaos, calamity and things that go bump in the night...

Praise for Beaky Malone: World’s Greatest Liar

"...this paean to outrageous whoppers is a quick-fire delight." - The Guardian

“Wild, wacky and brilliantly entertaining story about the power of truth - and lies.” – The Week Junior

“Seriously gut-busting, classic Hutchison humour...If you're looking for a rib tickling read, then this is the book for you.” – Serendipity Reviews

“A thoroughly entertaining read, definitely ideal for reluctant readers. I love books that make me chuckle and Beaky Malone does this over and over again.” – Book Lover Jo

“Laugh out loud funny from beginning to end.” - The Book Zone

“As his troubles grow his madcap capers will have you roaring with laughter while rooting for Beaky throughout.” - South Wales Evening Post

“Full of humour, with brilliantly depicted characters and wonderfully comic illustrations, this is just the sort of book to give reluctant readers, girls and boys, to help them appreciate the wonder of books.” – Parents In Touch

“Features plentiful comic-strip illustrations and incidental doodles that add energy and heart to a fun story of life in a cheerfully dysfunctional family. Best not to read this under the desk at school or on public transport, as the inevitable loud laughter may be embarrassing.” – Booktrust
