Description

Roman Garstang is obsessed with food—particularly Squidgy Splodge raspberry-jam doughnuts—but he is about to learn that things are not always as sugar-coated as they might seem. Because of his Monday-morning jam doughnut, Roman's week takes a very sticky turn. By Friday, Roman has been banned from eating for 24 hours, narrowly avoided a faceful of warm toddler-pee, accidentally shoplifted, been given a lift in a getaway van, styled his teacher's guinea pig with a blue mohawk, started an OAP riot. and still barely managed to scoff a crumb—or lick—of a single doughnut. Who knew jam could be so deadly?
