A hilarious comedy caper perfect for 5+

Young readers will laugh out loud at this story by comedy genius and bestselling author Jo Simmons.

Jo Simmons is one of our all-time favourite funny writers for kids of all ages. We're thrilled that she's teamed up with dyslexia-friendly publisher Barrington Stoke for her latest madcap adventure!


Frank has a big day ahead of him, with a trip to the dentist, a trumpet exam, a swimming contest and, most important of all, he has tickets to see his knitting hero on stage right here in his hometown! But all that is put at risk when Frank wakes up with the hiccups. And they just won’t STOP! Helped by his new friend Daisy, Frank tries ever more madcap ideas to get the hiccups to go away. But will the whole day end in disappointment and humiliation, or will Frank manage to turn calamity into a dramatic triumph? 

Jo Simmons is the author of several hilarious books for young readers including Lollies Book Awards-shortlisted I Swapped My Brother on the Internet, My Parents Cancelled My Birthday, and I Stole My Genius Sister’s Brain.
