Win the entire series of Accidental books by Tom McLaughlin

Whether you're an accidental billionaire, a spy, or even Father Christmas, here's how you can collect all seven hilarious escapades.

Accidents happen. You might have accidentally eaten a mouldy piece of cheese. Maybe you accidentally wore your shirt inside out. And we've all accidentally called the teacher "mum" instead of "miss".

But can you imagine accidentally becoming Prime Minister?

When 12-year-old Joe hears that the Prime Minister will be coming to his school for a publicity event, he knows it's the one opportunity he might have to talk to someone with some real influence. There are plans to close his beloved park, which would mean his Mum would lose her job, as well as all the local children losing out on a place to play. But when Joe gets the chance to speak out, he can't control the outburst that pours out of him. He is full of ideas about how things could be better, and everyone else agrees. Before he knows it, Joe is thrust straight through the limelight and into a seat at Number 10. But delivering on all those promises isn't easy, and Joe is going to learn that being Prime Minister isn't all riding around in comfortable cars and signing autographs on vegetables. (From The Accidental Prime Minister, reviewed here.)
