How Harry Riddles Made a Mega-Amazing Zombie Movie (Shoutykid, Book 1)


mini obc about the book

Meet the funniest kid in fiction!

Hi there,

My name is Harry Riddles and I am ten years old which my mum says is too young to have problems but she is WRONG. My dad just lost his job, which means we might have to move house and I need money to make my mega-amazing zombie movie but there is NO WAY I will sell my X-box! I’ve written to the Queen, Harry Styles, and the people off Dragons’ Den who might be able help but I don’t know if they’ll write back. If you have any bright ideas for making money I’d love to hear them and I can tell you how to get past level 6 on World of Zombies if you like.

Good luck and have fun

I really thought the cover of the book really stood out and looked like it was going to be fun to read. Harry is a ten year old boy who is always plays games on his X-Box, he lives Cornwall with his sister who he hates. The Riddles home is under threat from bailiff’s and its looking like Harry will have to move schools as his family cannot afford his school fee’s. Harry thinks he can solve all their problems by making a television series about a vegetarian baby Zombie. I thought the way the book was set up with emails and text was good, it was enjoyable to read and  had me laughing at times, will be reading book 2 straight away!

How Harry Riddles Mega-Massively Broke the School (Shoutykid, Book 2)


mini obc about the book

The funniest kid in fiction is back!

Hi there,

My name is Harry Riddles, and I live with my mum, my dad and my EVIL sister Charlotte. But now my mum is having TWINS so either me or Charlotte are gonna lose our bedroom. ALSO, Dad’s moaning that I should do more sport and not be just a gamer (which shows what he knows cos I’m actually the BEST gamer World of Zombies has ever seen). But I’ve joined the school football team to keep him happy although if we win anything it will be a miracle cos we suck. I’ve written to some stars of the football world to see if they wanna help out, and also a bunch of people who might take Charlotte off our hands – oh and Brad Pitt’s wife to see if she wants to adopt a couple more kids, but who knows if they will write back. We’ll see.

Good luck and have fun.

Like how book 2 has kind of the same cover 🙂

I thought this book wasn’t  as good as the first, I did read the whole book, the drawings make the book easy to follow and was a quick read but a bit boyish for me but sure my bother will love reading them, I enjoyed book 1 more 😦
