The Luckiest Kid in the World : The brand-new comedy adventure from the author of The Day the Screens Went Blank Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Gemma Correll

Narrated by Danny Wallace

Paperback / softback


What if you suddenly had everything you'd ever dreamed of?

That's exactly what happens to 10-year-old Joe Smith in this hilarious, brand-new comedy adventure from bestselling author, comedian and presenter Danny Wallace, with illustrations throughout from Gemma Correll.

Perfect for children age 8+ and fans of David Baddiel, Stephen Mangan, David Walliams, Andy Griffiths, Jenny Pearson and Helen Rutter. Joe Smith is average in every way. He is average height. He lives in an average town, on an average street, in an average house, with a very average family.

But when a survey identifies him as the most average kid in the country - well that makes him very special indeed.

Suddenly, everyone wants Joe to test out their latest products.

Overnight he is sent mountains of gifts - the best trainers, the coolest bike, the most exciting new tech, the latest flavours of ice cream - and so much more.

He gets special cinema screenings and the entire water park all to himself.

Joe now has everything he could possibly want in the world - and that's far from average. But is going from zero to hero all it's cracked up to be?

This brilliantly warm-hearted, laugh-out-loud family adventure will leave you thinking about friendship, family and why everyone is special just the way they are.
