Operation Itchy Bum
written and illustrated by Niki Daly

Age range: 7 -11

Alistair D'Arcy McDermott has a great mum and a great dad who love him very much ... but aren't so keen on each other. He also has a best friend with a wicked laugh and a teacher who wears tight white trousers and likes humiliating kids.

So when his mum decides that she's going on a blind date with the teacher from hell, Burke the Jerk, Al's worst nightmare has come true. And when she tells him that they're going on holiday with her new man, Al's got to do something drastic. He packs
his bag of total destruction and heads off for the holiday of a lifetime ....

A warm and laugh-out-loud tale of itching powder, stink bombs and nightmare teachers, told by the completely irresistible (and very ingenious) Alistair D'Arcy McDermott.

OPERATION ITCHY BUM is the first of two books about Alistair.
