Young readers will laugh out loud at this graphic novel by Barry Loser creator Waldo Pancake, aka Jim Smith

Jim Smith is one of those author/illustrators who understands exactly what kids like and isn't afraid to be a bit silly! His Barry Loser books are enormously popular with younger, more reluctant readers, but it's in his graphic novels that his trademark style really works its magic. This brand new book is sure to be a hit with kids and parents alike.


Why is misspelling stuff a sign of grate intelly-genz?

What have the hours in the day got to do with FINGER BONES?

Why does rain on a pavement smell so delish?

Zany and laugh out loud bonkers, this graphic novel of large and small facts, is The Best, and that's official! You'll want to quote from it, repeat the gags, and reread it again and again. Plus Waldo Pancake shows you how to draw stuff, as well as learning you to be the biggest genius ever . . .

Jim Smith is the most boringly-named graphic novelist in the world. That's why he calls himself Waldo Pancake. When he was a kid, Jim collected coke cans. Now he's grown up, he draws on paper cups and sugar sachets for a coffee shop chain called Puccino's. He also writes the Barry Loser kids' books which have sold over 850,000 copies and won him the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and the Laugh Out Loud Book Award. In his spare time, Jim makes little birds out of bits and pieces he finds in skips.
