A funny novel about the not-so-funny subject of cancer – and it even has Harry Hill in it! (Tee hee! Blub blub! Tee hee! Blub!) Philip is twelve, and his life is pretty good. He gets on with his mum and gets by pretty well at school. But Philip’s happy-go-lucky life gets bent all out of shape when Mum gets breast cancer. Aaarrgh. It’s bad enough that she’s really ill. But could she not have got a less embarrassing kind of cancer; toe cancer, maybe, or ear cancer? Philip needs urgent advice, and he knows just who to ask: his hero, the famous comedian Harry Hill…
