AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A wildly popular series of funny, fast-paced short stories told by young Andy, who considers himself the world's greatest, craziest, most annoying, and most stupid practical joker. The series contains many different styles of story, including stories told in the form of lists, choose-your-own adventures, comic strips, playscripts and letters. And all are accompanied by talking page numbers, cartoons and flick pictures in the margins by Terry Denton.'

Do you sometimes get the urge to take your clothes off and cover yourself in mud? Do you often waste your time taking crazy tests like this one? Score by giving one point for each 'yes' answer. If you score 3-5, you are completely crazy. You will love this book. If you score 1-2, you are not completely crazy, but you're not far from it. You will love this book. If you score 0, you are so crazy you don't even realise you're crazy. You will love this book.' (Publication summary)
