    With hilarious titles The Jam Doughnut that Ruined My Life, Attack of the Woolly Jumper and The Chicken Nugget Ambush, Roald Dahl Funny Prize-shortlisted author Mark Lowery's books following the misadventures of Roman Garstang will appeal to fans of Barry Loser 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.
