Norman plays drums in DogZombies and he’s BRILLIANT as long as he hasn’t had too much SUGAR (he gets VERY hyper and goes CRAZY). In this recent recipient of the 2011 Roald Dahl Funny Prize, readers will find an honest, silly and laugh-out-loud book in the format of Tom's battered homework diary, crammed full of his scribbles and stories.Happy To Help is an extra special 20th book from multi-million-copy selling author and illustrator Liz Pichon. From shrinking Delia's clothes to spending hours cleaning cars with Derek only for a storm to hit overnight and ruin everything - he leaps from one disaster to another. Creator Liz Pichon also appears in the episodes in a live-action segment in which she gives ideas for creating artwork inspired by the series. Stuff like: inventing new ways to annoy his sister Delia (so many); band practice for the Dogzombies (rock stars in the making!

Ten side-splitting tales featuring ant-infested underwear, a seriously delicious chicken pie and the enigmatic Wafer Boy. Hear about Tom's worst holiday ever ("camping sucks") and the time his parents went to parents' evening ("groan").
