Luke is a gifted but awkward ten-year-old who is obsessed with world records, and is nervous about starting senior school a year early as 'the swot with the dead dad'. When Luke's tiny, unique Jersey village is in danger of being bulldozed to the ground to make way for a waste incinerator plant, the only way to stop it is by putting the village on the map: by breaking 50 world records in a week. With the help of geeky adjudicator Simon and a colourful cast of oddball village characters, this is Luke's chance to shine, to solve his mum's relationship problems, and to face his biggest fears - with bizarre, extraordinary consequences.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A feel-good family drama with plenty of humour and a great cast of crazy characters. Warm and touching, with lots of heart" -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller *
"This is a real charmer full of gentle humour, traditional English eccentrics who'll raise a smile, a sweet romance and a lovely narrator" * thebookbag.co.uk *
"Funny and fast, this is an engaging story with colourful characters, ridiculous records and the occasional serious moment" * The Scotsman *
"Fantastic . . . The tissue moments are off-set by the rest of the humour. I love how much I laughed while reading this 10/10 read" * Nayu's Reading Corner *
