... a feel-good family drama with plenty of humour and a great cast of crazy characters. Warm and touching, with lots of heart (Fiona Noble The Bookseller 2011-03-25)
This is a real charmer which tweens and younger teens are going to lap up. It's an easy to read book despite the fairly lengthy chapters - it's full of gentle humour, traditional English eccentrics who'll raise a smile from the adults reading, a sweet romance for Luke's mum, and a lovely narrator... Some of the records attempted and achieved are impressively zany... Overall, this is a high recommendation which children and parents alike will enjoy as a nice light read.

Funny and fast, this is an engaging story with colourful characters, ridiculous records and the occasional serious moment. ( The Scotsman)
fun-filled read ( Nationa Georgraphic Kids 2011-08-12)
Luke is a gifted but awkward ten-year-old who is obsessed with world records, and is nervous about starting senior school a year early as 'the swot with the dead dad'. When Luke's tiny, unique Jersey village is in danger of being bulldozed to the ground to make way for a waste incinerator plant, the only way to stop it is by putting the village on the map: by breaking 50 world records in a week.
With the help of geeky adjudicator Simon and a colourful cast of oddball village characters, this is Luke's chance to shine, to solve his mum's relationship problems, and to face his biggest fears - with bizarre, extraordinary consequences.
