Have you ever been kissed by a dog? Ever had to eat Vegemite off your sister's big toe? Have you had a job delivering teeth? Has a bloodthirsty magpie ever been out to get you? Ever woken up to discover that everything hovers? And have you eaten 67 hot dogs in 10 minutes? I have. I'm Tom Weekly. This book is full of my stories, jokes, cartoon characters, ideas for theme park rides, and other stuff I've made up. It's where I pour out whatever's inside my head. It gets a bit weird sometimes, but that's how I roll.

Praise For…

"A laugh-out-loud look at a boy's imagination with all of the bravado and cringe-worthy moments that readers might expect. . . . a good choice for reluctant readers. . . . another pick for readers looking for Diary of a Wimpy Kid read-alikes."  —School Library Journal on My Life & Other Stuff I Made Up

"A sort of Aussie tall-tale version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. . . . A good choice for kids drawn to the upside down and out-and-out disgusting, and they will also learn a bit about Australian culture along the way."  —Booklist on My Life & Other Stuff I Made Up
