How on Earth did I end up 'volunteering' to help out on a school trip full of small-year-olds? At least I've got my book of special plans, charts, and diagrams to keep everything in order. I mean, how hard can it be looking after my little brother Fred and his mates? Read this bo...ok to find out how to be cool, how to make friends, the best things about snails (yes, really), and how NOT to pack ice cream in your suitcase. You might just laugh your head off . . . probably at me! Stanley and his little brother Fred are off to an outdoor adventure camp to learn all about life in the wild . . . but it's not the wildlife that Stan needs to survive, it's Fred, plus the annoying cool kids from the other school, and Mr Fisher (who is determined to make the trip anything but fun)! As Stanley struggles to cope he charts all the ups and downs in a series of hilarious infographics. Full of infographics, charts, and tables - this book is highly visual and full of laugh-out-loud moments that readers will love!Read more
Elaine Wickson lives in Oxford with her husband and two sons and is often found either looking up at trees or stars. At school she filled her books with stories instead of maths, which is probably why she only just about passed some A Levels. In her teens she could have become a champion cha-cha-cha dancer, but preferred to watch TV instead. And in the world of work she stood at many photocopiers, dreaming up characters while the multipage double-sided document jammed in the paper feeder. Luckily she redeemed herself by learning to type at almost the speed of light and finally knuckled down to some writing. Chris Judge is an illustrator and picture book creator based in Dublin, Ireland. His first picture book The Lonely Beast won the Specsavers Irish Book of the Year Award in 2011. He is also the illustrator of the much-loved Danger is Everywhere books, written by David O'Doherty.
