Product Description

Norman knew it was going to be one of those days when he woke up and found himself about to pee in his dad’s wardrobe.

Nothing is ever fair in Norm’s world – and since his family moved house, things are even worse than usual. Why on earth did they have to move, anyway? In their old place, he never tried to pee in anything but a toilet! And when Norm is in bed, he’s kept awake by his dad snoring like a constipated rhinoceros. Will he ever get used to their rubbish new house, where you can hear every tiny noise through the flimsy walls? Will he stop being pestered by his annoying little brothers? Will life ever get less unfair for Norm? Packed with hilarious cartoons, this is a laugh-out-loud new series for any fan of the Wimpy Kid!

“Hilarious stuff from one of my comic heroes!” Harry Hill

    I loved reading the first Norm book, May Contain Nuts. It is really funny when Norm nearly pees in his mum and dad’s wardrobe because he forgot he moved house. Get the book to read more laughs.

    Norm is a good book, not the best but as I said, good. To be honest Norm is totally crazy at the beginning because he says the toilet has disappeared and forgot that they moved house 3 months before!

    Jonathan Meres has a good writing talent but the book was not that comical in my opinion, but luckily the funny illustrations make up for this. I know this because my brother and sister were laughing like mad when they were looking at the pictures.

    I rate this book 2.75/5 because it lacks the funniness of Jeremy Strong and Jeff Kinney books, a great debut but just not up there yet!
