By Giles Andreae
Illustrated by Nick Sharratt
A strong central character, with huge naughty boy appeal. These three madcap adventures read brilliantly by Morwenna Banks will have children rolling with laughter!
Mad stuff just happens with Billy Bonkers! Billy is a bouncy, bubbly, bonkers boy. And wherever he goes, off-the-wall adventures always seem to follow. From bouncing so hard on his trampoline that he bounces up, up and away...into space, and eating so much porridge his stomach puffs up and he floats into the garden tree (and gets stuck...until he burps anyway), to a flight on a deflating lilo to biff a big, vicious shark right on the nose! Along with his wacky dad, brainy sister and down-to-earth mum, Billy's life is never boring, it's bonkers! This zany text is perfectly accompanied by Nick Sharratt's energetic illustrations.
