Part of the The Barry Loser Series SeriesWrite A Review
Winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2013 for the funniest book for children aged seven to fourteen. Barry Loser perfectly combines the random inner thoughts and outer goofiness of a schoolboy set on being the ‘keelest’ kid in school, but thwarted by friends, enemies and his gran. Full of crazy cartoons, chaotic situations and hare-brained schemes, this diary will make you laugh out loud, cringe and snigger, all at the same time!
You know when someone's horrible to you in a dream and you wake up really annoyed with them? That's what happened to me with my best friend Bunky. Barry has a new problem: Gordon Smugly - who's got the most perfect name for himself ever in the history of having a name, because he looks like a Gordon and is smug and ugly - has stolen Barry's best friend. Join Barry as he attempts to get Bunky back, organises a girly-screamvoice test and tries to avoid seeing his teacher kissing his gran.
