Book of the Month!
 
Accidental President 
by Tom McLaughlin
 
EN Fiction
AR Level to be confirmed
On a visit to the US things take a strange turn for 12-year-old Ajay when, completely at random and totally by accident, he is sworn in as the new president. Well, I guess he can't be any worse than that guy who had the job before him, right?
 
Waterstones says:

'...a totally hilarious story, brilliantly written and amusingly illustrated - with clear undercurrents of reality' - Parents in Touch 

Praise for The Accidental Secret Agent:

'...so funny that you are going to fall off your chair in laughter.' - lovereading4kids.co.uk
