Buy from Penguin
OK, so going on holiday with your grandparents is not the coolest thing ever, but it's fine - Anton is planning to spend the summer in the pool. But then disaster strikes . . . their holiday camp DOES NOT HAVE A POOL! Instead it has a lake - a lake filled with murky, slimy, dark disgusting sludge - and Anton just can't understand why everybody else is so happy to dive-bomb and swim in it all day long.
Baking in the sun and dying of boredom away from the lake and the other young people on holiday, Anton has no idea how he's going to survive the holiday That is until he meets an unexpected friend . . .
A funny, quirky new character for boy readers. An Adrian Mole for a new generation.
Translated by Chantal Wright.
