More hilarious tales of mishaps and mayhem in Tom Weekly's world, in this second instalment of award-winning author Tristan Bancks's funny series.

I'm Tom Weekly. If you want to know what went wrong, listen to this and laugh. You'll learn the secret of my strangest body part. You'll meet my super-angry grandpa, and hear about my best non-human friend, Rarnald the rat. You'll find out why I've been banned from KidsWorld. But that won't freak you out as much as the story of how Stella Holling tricked me into kissing her. Three things you'll learn inside: 1. How to climb Mount Everest 2. How to make a backyard theme park 3. How to escape a pirate

'Reading Tristan Bancks is like jumping on a rollercoaster – fun, exciting and a bit dangerous, too. Where were books like this when I was a kid?'
John Boyne, author of The Boy in The Striped Pyjamas

'I was reminded of Paul Jennings’ short stories… The stories start off plausible but by the end have stretched into (very funny) tall tales.'
