THE DIARY OF DENNIS THE MENACE: THE GREAT ESCAPE
Dennis the Menace is back with The Great Escape, the sixth instalment in his diary series. Brought to you by shortlisted Roald Dahl Funny Prize author, Steven Butler, have fun finding out about all of the latest menacing from The Beano’s biggest prankster. Fans of Horrid Henry and Wimpy Kid will love the diaries of Britain’s most naughty boy.
In the sixth book in the bestselling series, The Great Escape, Dennis the Menace – Prankmaster General and feared enemy of softies everywhere - has been sent to an elite boarding school. Dennis is surrounded by bookish boffins, can’t hang out with the Bash Street Kids and is nearly starving as the school dining room only serves super-healthy food.
What he needs is a plan. With a little help from his menacing buddies on the outside, some fart pellets and Gran on a Charley Davison bike, it’s time for Dennis to make his great escape...
DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LONG HAUL
The Wimpy Kid books are 50% comic-strip, 50% novel and 100% hilarious. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, the ninth book in the series, features Greg Heffley and his family on a typical road trip. A family road trip is supposed to be a lot of fun... unless, of course, you're the Heffleys.
The journey starts off full of promise, then quickly takes several wrong turns. Gas station bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a fender bender, and a runaway pig - not exactly Greg Heffley's idea of a good time. But even the worst road trip can turn into an adventure - and this is one the Heffleys won't soon forget.
