Author(s): Michael Rosen
Malcolm is in all ways an ordinary ten-year-old. This is a perfectly ordinary story featuring one perfectly ordinary ten year old, his very bossy uncle, some baked beans, a school which tries to make interesting things BORING, the famed Italian city of Ponky, and a genie who appears when you rub your nose. It also includes lots of very useful facts, many of which are untrue.
The ridiculously talented Michael Rosen and Neal Layton have paired up to bring young readers the most uproarious comic fiction we've ever published!
