I Never Liked Wednesdays

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

Things never go right on Wednesdays. It's always raining, and it's hard to spell. So when, one boring Wednesday, two schoolboy friends decide to run away to sea, taking only some jammie dodgers, a slug of rum and a pair of night vision goggles, things will surely go wrong. The stowaways hide in a lifeboat, devour their supplies and get very seasick. When they creep out of hiding, they get a nasty surprise…Nearly as nasty as when Forklift Kathleen sits down on the bed they're hiding under at Midge's big sister's teenage party…

A hilarious tale about two young boys getting up to mischief and into scrapes in latter-day Liverpool, by the award-winning poet, playwright and author, Roger McGough.
