Product Description

Life for Norm isn’t getting any less unfair in this fourth book in the bestselling series. His homework may be unfinished and his papers may be undelivered, but what do you expect when his pocket money is overdue and he remains the ONLY kid in the world without an iPad?! Is that unfair? ABSO-FLIPPING-LUTELY right it is! The latest treat in Jonathan Meres’ brilliant series about the planet’s most put-upon boy is every bit as funny and full of injustices as the previous instalments. The ideal series for fans of Tom Gates and the Wimpy Kid!

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

    I read this book, it took me quite some time. However the book is humorous and I’d love it if sometime there would be another book similar to these released!
