Australia's favourite kid, Tom Weekly, is back with a new book of all disastrous, all preposterous, and definitely all hilarious adventures!
Have you ever tried to eat a car? Has your guinea pig ever been taken hostage? Does your mum always have jobs for you to do around the house? Has your grandmother asked you to help her commit a crime? Have you ever been attacked by a tribe of killer possums? Is your ice-cream man the angriest ice-cream man in Australia? And could your bum possibly save the world?
I'm Tom Weekly and this is my life.
