The Jam Doughnut That Ruined My Life

Publisher: Piccadilly

Review

Roman loves jam doughnuts. He doesn't think they're as dangerous as sharks…or trousers! But he learns that they can cause a lot of trouble, nonetheless.

Roman's possession of a secret doughnut on a school trip attracts the prettiest and cleverest girl in the class. It also draws Darren Gamble, the class lunatic, who hits Roman with a poisonous jelly fish.

While his girlfriend's doughnut demands get out of hand, Roman's relationship with Darren leads to shaving and then losing his teacher's guinea pig, taking part in a sweet shop heist and causing a riot at an old people's tea party.

Warm-hearted and hilarious and there is already a sequel on its way.
