In the second installment of Jim Smith's popular Barry Loser series, Barry has a new problem in the shape of the aptly-named Gordon Smugly. Gordon has stolen Barry's best friend Bunky, and this is the story of how Barry attempts to get Bunky back, organises a girly-screamvoice test, and tries to avoid seeing his teacher kissing his gran.
This is a funny story with plenty of wacky cartoon-style illustrations that are sure to make readers smile. The themes of friendship, family and the ups and downs of everyday life will resonate with primary aged children - and there is plenty of silly humour and madcap fun to help keep readers entertained.
