    Roald Dahl Funny Prize-shortlisted author Mark Lowery's hilarious books following the misadventures of Roman Garstang will appeal to fans of Barry Loser, The 13-Storey Treehouse and The World of Norm.

    Delightfully gross and very funny, The Jam Doughnut that Ruined My Life follows Roman as his week becomes a jam-filled disaster all because of one solitary doughnut. Shortly after tucking into his Monday morning doughnut, Roman's week takes a sticky turn - he finds himself banned from eating for 24 hours, narrowly avoiding a faceful of warm toddler wee and being given a lift in a getaway van. He even finds time to style his teacher's guinea pig into a blue mohawk...

    In Attack of the Woolly Jumper, Roman's wearing a sweatshirt knitted by his Grandma when his school receives a royal visit. As part of the school's fundraising efforts, Roman's been sponsored to wear this crummy jumper ('crumper') all week - no matter what happens. Of course, within days it's almost been thrown down a toiler, caused a swan attack and made a biker swerve off the road.

    The Chicken Nugget Ambush finds Roman being put on a chicken nugget-only diet by his mum - just before going on an outdoor adventure trip; The Great Caravan Catastrophe has Roman's cousin marrying the cousin of 'The Worst Person Who Ever Lived'; and Revenge of the Spaghetti Hoops follows Roman as he vows to take a starring role in an ex-pupil's reality TV show.

    Jo Nesbo may be best-known for his gritty Nordic crime thrillers, but did you know he's also a most-talented children's author? The Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder series is full of the zest and anarchy of David Walliams and Roald Dahl's most popular novels.

    This collection brings together all four hilarious novels in this bestselling series. The crazy plots revolve around Doctor Proctor - an inventor who dreams of becoming famous. When he creates a super-strength fart powder that can propel people into outer space, he may have just achieved his goal... But he hasn't counted on the ruthless twins Tuis and Trym spoiling his plans. The fart-filled adventure takes in a firework extravaganza, a trip to prison and an escaped anaconda!

    The other books in the series are equally delightfully absurd - Doctor Proctor, Nilly and Lisa have to win a football tournament to save the last of Norway's gold (which has been turned into the trophy), the Doctor works on a Time-Travel Bath Bomb and he and his friends discover a TV show is hypnotising everyone who watches it... Wickedly funny stories for children, including reluctant readers, aged 9+.
