The Astounding Broccoli Boy – Frank Cottrell Boyce. Reviewed by Mango Bubbles Boy (9)

Rory Rooney is getting bullied at school. But when he goes on a school trip, he mysteriously turns green!! This results in him being sent to hospital. He gets chucked in a room. There is a shape under a blanket in the corner. And it turns out Rory is sharing a room, with his ‘Public Enemy No. 1’!! Tommy-Lee Komissky. Rory reckons that he is a super hero, like Hulk or Swamp Thing (except they are a lot bigger).

But there is a bigger problem, when Tommy-Lee, and his sleepwalking, drove Rory and Tommy into a lot of trouble…

I love this book, because, it is soooooooo intriguing, My favourite character, would probably be Koko, because she is very clever, and witty.
