Ten-year-old Leo Wriggly enjoys the spoils of his parents' unusual careers. Life as Professional Competition Winners has its perks. One enormous perk is a particularly lucky week that nets Mum and Dad a nice vacation for two. Unfortunately, that leaves Leo stuck at home with his old Aunt Margo.

A stickler for rules, Aunt Margo is none too pleased with Leo's behavior. When she witnesses him swallowing his chewing gum, that's the last straw. Off to Friendly Island she sends him until his parents return, but things are not all they seem on the island.

It doesn't take long for Leo to discover Friendly Island isn't so friendly after all. It's a place where naughty children are sent to correct their disgusting behavior. Four other children arrive with him and soon unusual punishments are distributed, and the results are mind-boggling.

Harriet is cursed with a bird's nest atop her head for her "crimes". Felix literally loses his mind. Ricky is forced to spend eternity squawking like a parrot. Eden's hands are made of glue. And poor Leo is now forced to live with massive bubbles blowing out of his butt for swallowing gum.

Can Leo save himself and his friends before the island's Komodo dragon eats them for supper, or is their fate already sealed?

Perfect for readers between Grade 2 - 6 in the US or Years 3 - 7 in the UK.

Review quote

This book is an imaginative feast - each turned page prompted loud "urghhhs" or "ooohhs" in our house! If you can embrace nose-picking, bubblegum-popping and banana-yellow tracksuits; this book will give you a rollercoaster ride! We all loved it!

Susannah Jones

Brilliant and clever story for ages 10 to 100 years old! The vivid illustration of every character and scene was captivating! Very easy read, and entertaining book. I Highly recommend it!

Cheryl Hayward

A crazy fun filled adventure, full of vivid descriptions and interesting characters. The kids encounter their worst nightmares on what was supposed to be the holiday of their dreams. Complete with nasty baddies, weird obstacles to overcome, dangerous critters and a bit of magic. Funny and fun. Recommended for middle school kids.
