This giveaway is sponsored by Piccadilly Press

An outdoor adventure trip is one thing, but can Roman Garstang survive a chicken-nugget-only diet?

Roman Garstang is all set for his class trip to Farm View outdoor survival centre. There are only three issues:

1. With Darren Gamble as his new 'BFF', how can Roman make friends with funny, cool girl Vanya?

2. Roman will be sharing a tent with Kevin (AKA 'The Pukelear Missile') for THREE DAYS

3. Mum has prescribed a strict chicken-nugget-only diet (seriously?!)

It's time to put his new survival skills to the test...


The Chicken Nugget Ambush is the latest installment in the Roman Garstang Disaster series and is a laugh-out-loud tale perfect for children aged 9-11.


Praise for Mark Lowery:

"Mark Lowery is far too funny." – Jonathan Meres, author of The World of Norm




About the author:

Mark Lowery grew up in Preston but now lives near Cambridge with his young family. Some of the time he is a primary school teacher. In the olden days he used to spend his time doing lots of active stuff like running, hiking, snowboarding and swimming, but now he prefers staying in and attempting to entertain his children. He plays the guitar badly and speaks appalling Italian but he knows a lot about biscuits. In his mind he is one of the great footballers of his generation, although he is yet to demonstrate this on an actual football pitch.

He has an MA in Writing for Children and his first two books - Socks Are Not Enough and Pants Are Everything - were both shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. He is yet to find a cake that he doesn't like. You can find Mark on his website or on Twitter @hellomarklowery
