SHORTLISTED FOR THE LAUGH OUT LOUD BOOK AWARDS!
Meet Wilf. He worries about everything. He is a Mighty Worrier. And now the most evil man in the world has moved in next door...
Things Wilf was worried about before:
1. Stuffed animals.
2. Peanut Butter.
3. Creepy crawlies that have waggly feeler things instead of eyes.
Things Wilf is worried about now:
4. The most evil man in the world.
5. The most evil man in the world living next door.
6. Anyone called Alan.
When Alan, a self-styled Evil Lunatic, moves in next door with his grumpy robot sidekick and his silent right-hand-dog, Kevin Phillips, Wilf knows he will have to find a way to overcome his anxiety and fears. And soon he realises: only he can stop Alan's ridiculous yet still Quite Evil plan to destroy the world...
