review this book

Engaging story, flowing and full of suspense
Reviewer: Author Cid
Ages: Y4, Y5, Y6       Genres: Humour, Lifestyle & Family Issues, School

When Nicholas is holiday with his mum he accidently disturbs a grave (by weeing on it!) and he falls under an ancient curse. From that day onwards calamity follows him everywhere. Wasps attack teachers, radiators burst and a tiger even arrives in a classroom! He finds a friend - Fiona - who is willing to help and, with the support of her and few other characters, he finally breaks free of the curse. Very readable!

Touching and engaging with a focus on the power of self belief.
