Australia's favourite kid, Tom Weekly, is back with a new audiobook of all disastrous, all preposterous and definitely all hilarious adventures.

Discover what happens when you mix one kid with nine attack possums. Observe the result of a guinea pig hostage situation. Learn from my get-rich-quick scheme to put Australia's angriest ice-cream man out of business. Get ready to judge the world's deadliest fruitcake competition. And if I survive it all, let's call the experiment a success. More handy stuff inside: 1. Tips on avoiding household chores 2. Weird facts about guinea pigs 3. How to eat a car

'Bancks dishes up ten easily digested stories – ranging from a hostage situation involving a guinea pig to the improvised Buttfresh spray for those inopportune ‘trouser coughs’ – each served with a healthy serve of gross-out humour, useful tips and life lessons from the wise, wacky and wonderful Tom.'
Reading Time

'Fans of Griffiths, Gleitzman and Jennings will be thrilled to have this in their collection. Author Bancks doesn't skip a beat as he writes from his character Tom's perspective.' (on My Life and Other Stuff I Made Up)
Kids Book Review

'What an exhilirating ride it is to follow the misadventures of Tom Weekly … Delightful and funny. Bancks has beautifully captured the essence of boyhood. Tom is a typical 21st-century schoolboy, following in the fine tradition of Ginger Meggs ... Best of all, it made me laugh.' (on My Life and Other Exploding Chickens)
