Tough Turkey by Jamie Rix
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Alistair is still out for revenge - against his wily older brother, his sneaky big sister, his warty piano teacher, and the rest of the world. And when he discovers that Mum has plans to revolultionise Christmas - goose instead of turkey and a photographer from HELLO magazine there all day - Alistair vows to get his revenge on her too. When a postman called Gabriel delivers the message that Alistair's cousin Mary is coming to stay with her new-born baby and then three kings turn up in Alistair's hand at Beggar My Neighbour, a distinct pattern emerges...An outrageously funny seasonal excerpt from the diaries of this most hapless eleven-year-old.
