Archie's Unbelievably Freaky Week
Publisher: David Fickling Books
Poor Archie! Lovable but hapless Archie Coates manages to attract strange escapades wherever he goes. While trying his best to help others, Archie sees off a new teacher each day, puts a school inspector in his place (with his head down a toilet), narrowly avoids brain surgery and turns into a dog (sort of). Luckily his loyal sidekick Cyd is on hand to straighten things out.
A humorous and warm-hearted tale, Archie’s adventures are perfect for sharing at bedtime. Norriss skilfully tickles his readers’ funnybones while delivering a touching message about friendship and the importance of keeping calm in the face of even the most unusual events.
