I'm Tom Weekly and eating is my favourite sport.
My mum's raspberry muffins are weapons of minor destruction. I've been trapped inside a runaway car on a trip to buy ice cream. I accidentally invented meatball bungee. And my recipe for chocolate mousse has a secret ingredient that you don't even want to know.
What would you rather do?
1. Ride a shark or a rhino?
2. Kiss a dog or a cat?
3. Needle in the eye or bum set on fire?
'Like Dahl, Bancks is passionate about inspiring a love of reading in the young by placing fun at the centre of his storytelling.' ANDY GRIFFITHS, author of the Treehouse series
“Tristan can go from writing the powerful and haunting Two Wolves to the whacky humour of his character Tom Weekly in the ‘My Life’ series with seeming ease . . . This fifth ‘My Life’ book is as laugh out loud funny as the others and the third to include a story written by a young writer . . . My Life and Other Weaponised Muffins is packed full of great images by Gus Gordon, short stories, jokes, cartoons, quizzes and lists ‘by’ character Tom Weekly and includes the idea of selling your head lice for fun and profit and raspberry and white chocolate muffins as weapons of minor destruction.”
Megan Daley, Children's Books Daily
“This title is a laugh-a-minute, rip-roaring read for adults and children alike.”
