This really does remind me of Roald Dahl’s writing, it’s dark and comic at the same time, it may be aimed at 10 year olds but it’s a great read for adults too ( well this adult definitely!).

The cover wouldn’t really draw in the reader it’s aimed at (IMHO) but well worth looking beyond that.


Johnny Nothing – new kids book from Ian Probert. Out today!


WARNING: This book will seriously damage your funny bone.

The poorest boy in school has just inherited £1 million. But there is a catch: If he can hold on to his cash for a whole year he will earn ten times that amount. Enter Felicity MacKenzie, the ugliest, sweatiest, vilest, cruelest, hairiest mother in the western world. When she steals her son’s money and goes on the spending spree to end all spending sprees it seems that Johnny Nothing will stay poor forever. However, Johnny has a plan – he will imprison his parents and force them to do homework and go to bed early as punishment.

Join Johnny Nothing, Bill and Ben the bouncer men, Ebenezer Dark and a cast of literally dozens in (probably) the funniest book you will (most likely) ever read in (some of) your lifetime. Learn why solicitors like handbags; why dead people are windier than the North Sea; why parents dislike electrocution; and what happens to you after you die.

Johnny Nothing: Book 01 in a series of less than two from best-selling author Ian Probert.
