Product description

Boring? Stay away. Only the bold and fearless will like this funny book. Read at your peril. Got a boring name like John Smith (yawn)? Maybe you have a mega exciting secret. John does. He can whisk himself into other worlds and have totally wild adventures. Cool! Like: being a swashbuckling pirate of the high seas, showing off his sword skills and fearless daring. Sounds like fun? Never judge a book by its cover. And never judge a kid by his boring name. Tearaway thrills by the writer dude behind the Dennis and Gnasher TV series. (Hmmm: Dennis is kind of a boring name too, right?)
