Perfect for fans of Pamela Butchart, David Solomons' My Brother Is a Superhero and David Baddiel's The Parent Agency - a hilarious tale of wish fulfilment gone wrong that every child will relate to
Tom's parents have cancelled his birthday. Not just any birthday either. His eleventh birthday, which is, according to family lore, his Lucky Birthday. Tom had been looking forward to his Lucky Birthday his whole life. Tom had been planning the birthday to end all birthdays. Ace sleepover, epic pizza, you name it - Tom's party was going to have it all! But then Tiny the pig fell off the garage roof and crushed Nana Maureen's chihuahua. Then Nana thought the dog was haunting the house. And Dad hit his head. And Tom's sister Meg decided she was cursed by the Tooth Fairy. And Mum accidentally made a very bad dog-food Bolognese. Things are massively unravelling, so Tom's birthday is off! But of course Tom cannot let this happen. Will he be able to save his birthday? It will involve bacon sandwiches, chicken whispering, an enormous dog called Major and a few gladiators. But it might just be OK ...
This cautionary tale will make children yelp in agreement and roll around with laughter, but ultimately leave them appreciating their brother or sister a little bit more. They won't need any encouragement to read it either. With a simple and engaging style of writing, and plenty of twists and turns in the plot, readers will be hooked from page one. A great story with a likeable lead character and some important lessons * BookTrust on I SWAPPED MY BROTHER ON THE INTERNET *
