About the Author:

Jeremy Strong once worked in a bakery, putting the jam into three thousand doughnuts every night. Now he puts the jam into stories instead, which he finds much more exciting. He loves writing stories because it's 'the only time you alone have complete control and can make anything happen'. His ambition is to make you laugh (or at least snuffle). Jeremy Strong lives near Bath with his wife, Gillie, four cats and a flying cow.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6–Tim thinks he has the most boring life and family in the world. He is embarrassed that his father plays with toy trains and his mother glues shells onto flower pots. With the school bully, Gary, and principal, Mr. Dedman, criticizing him, he dreads going to school. He escapes this awful existence by having fantastic daydreams in which he is the hero–a super-spy, an internationally recognized surgeon–each time saving the object of his affection, Sophie. Mr. Dedman becomes unglued when graffiti about chickens begins appearing on the walls at school. Accused of writing the graffiti by staff and students, Tim is further alienated. The situation at home takes a turn for the worse when Tim discovers that his father dresses up as Wonder Woman. The mystery is unraveled when Tim goes before the school board to determine if he will be expelled. British stage actor Tom Lawrence gives a delightful reading of the text based on the UK-released book by Jeremy Strong. He varies vocal pitch to differentiate characters, carefully showing Tim's preteen angst, Miss Dove's understanding, and Mr. Dedman's paranoia. This hilarious mystery is full of twists and turns and would be a solid suggestion for fans of Gordon Korman.–Stephanie Bange, Wilmington-Stroop Branch, Dayton Metro Library, OH
