Hi, I'm Toby and I want to get something straight. What you're about to read is NOT a diary. Diaries smell like strawberry bubblegum and have stupid little locks that are easy to open. This is a logbook, the sort sea captains and pilots and astronauts write. Someone will probably... find it in a pirate's chest in a hundred years. It's NOT a diary. Remember that. Anyway, there are some other things you need to know. I love sport and I hate school. My sister is the most annoying person in the world and my friends Jonesy and Hughsey are the coolest. I also think the GameBox V3 is the best video game EVER. Guess what? Dad has agreed to buy me one - but there's a catch: I have to get 20 wickets and 10 tries by the end of the season. Shot! But then a new kid arrives at my school. His name is Malcolm McGarvy and he's got legs that look like they were stolen from a gorilla. He lives with his uncle and is allowed to stay up ALL night! Here's the problem. McGarvy is also good at sport, but he doesn't care about winning. He just wants to stop ME from getting the Gamebox V3. Welcome to MY BEST, WORST YEAR. REVIEWS: In the interests of instilling a love of reading in our children we read to them. A lot! What is crucial is that the books we read grab their attention and keep them riveted. And if it can keep the parents who have to read it entertained as well its a welcome bonus. And finally, if there is a lesson or two in there, subtle enough not be be seen as lessons, then great! The whole family enjoyed this book. My wife and I read some each night with the kids always begging for more, no matter how much we read. We had to learn to stop early, then agree to 'one more chapter'. The adults enjoyed the book as much as the kids because it took us back to what it felt like to be young, and the challenges and issues we faced. When Jill was reading I also wanted 'just one more chapter'. I got the distinct impression the author has not grown up himself, which is just what's needed in a children's book author. Justin captured what it was like to be a kid as if he was still living it. Richard Howes Over all I rate this fantastic book 9 out of 10. When your mum or dad says go to bed and stop reading you sneakily keep reading because your on a cliff-hanger, then suddenly you're already done, then you start having a melt down. Well the only downs in this book are probably...nothing so I should probably rate this 10 out of 10 but I don't want to be too nice. Once again it was totally awesome. This book is about if Toby gets 20 wickets and 10 tries by the end of the season he gets a gameboxv3 but this big bully called mcGravy try's to stop him from getting that game box so will Toby get those wickets and tries before its to late? And this book is very funny. By Finn
