My Life as a Book

The newspaper clippings hide a riddle about Derek. Trouble is, he can’t read… Imagine the Wimpy Kid in a mystery. Wise, smart, funny. Summer’s finally here, and Derek Fallon is looking forward to pelting the UPS truck with water balloons from the garage roof. But his parents have other plans: sending him to Learning Camp. He’ll be struggling to read mouldy books all summer long. Aaaargh. But Derek’s camp holiday takes a startling turn when he finds some old newspapers. They tell how a young babysitter died saving his life when he was tiny. Can Derek solve this family secret – and make some new friends too? Jokes, cartoons and a real mystery: if you like Joey Pigza, you’ll love this.
