Laugh your socks off with Wilf on a dino-tastic adventure! Perfect for fans of Tom Gates, David Baddiel, Danny Wallace and Phil Earle.

Meet Wilf. He worries about everything. He is a Mighty Worrier.

And now Wilf's evil next-door-neighbour Alan is determined to rule the world ... from the very beginning of time!

But on the way to prehistoric Earth in Alan's time machine, Wilf is desperate for a wee, so they stop off in the 16th Century. There they meet Henry VIII - a very shouty man, who hitches a ride.

Now Alan AND Henry want to be King of the World. Can Wilf stop them with the help of his new dinosaur friends?

Join Wilf as he travels back in time to walk with dinosaurs and save the world from Alan ... again!

Review quote

Great, characterful illustrations add humour and heart. * WRD Books * Funny, imaginative and adventurous...anyone should read this to turn their frown upside down. * Guardian Children's Book Reviews * An endearing story that will have worriers everywhere cheering for this unlikely hero * Mother Daughter Bookclub * Genuinely touching and wonderfully funny. A total delight of a, what I call, book. * Miranda Hart * A lively, funny story that should delight and reassure many children who are worriers themselves * Jacqueline Wilson * With fantastic attention to all the funny details that make Wilf's life (and his nemesis, Alan) so worrisome, this is a truly laugh-out-loud read that also has a reassuring message for children who worry about the world -- Anna Loudon * Book Trust * ... great to read aloud as there are lots of opportunities for silly voices....The author really draws the reader in and they will soon become totally immersed in Wilf's crazy adventures. * Parents In Touch *

About Georgia Pritchett

Georgia Pritchett (Author)
Georgia Pritchett is a comedy writer who has written for a number of TV comedies and comedians including The Thick Of It, Veep, Miranda, Have I Got News For You, Smack the Pony, Graham Norton, Jo Brand, Paul Merton, Lenny Henry, Ronnie Corbett, Wallace and Gromit and several other real, fictional and occasionally plasticine people.

Jamie Littler (Illustrator)
Jamie is a St. Albans-based illustrator who graduated from the Arts Institute at Bournemouth in 2008, and won a High Commendation in the Macmillan Children's Book Award in the same year.

Since then Jamie has worked with many varied clients, and his debut children's book, 'MUM'S THE WORD', written by Timothy Knapman, is to be published by Hodder Children's Books in 2013.

He is the creator, writer and illustrator of the on-going comic series 'COGG & SPROKIT' which is serialised in the Phoenix Comic, and his debut fiction series 'ATOMIC!', published by Scholastic Children's Books, written and created by Guy Bass, was released in 2012.

When not trying to tame his un-naturally fast growing hair, he likes drawing, colouring in, cutting things out and sticking things in. Whatever medium he uses, Jamie tries to create a 'hand-made', organic and energetic feeling in his work. His interests are pretty wide and varied; although he does have a soft spot for wild animals and things that go bump in the night.

Jamie is represented by Jodie Marsh at United Agents.
