Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Book Prize 2009
Another brilliantly funny story from an incredibly funny author. Josh is not impressed when he has to write a poem for homework so he decides to ‘borrow’ one from a book. His teacher is impressed, so impressed in fact that he is sent on a poetry course, which means missing his favourite activity – football. And Josh is even less amused when he discovers the person running the course is the man who wrote the poem he stole. Josh is in more trouble than you can imagine.
