A high-energy, laugh-out-loud, fully illustrated adventure story by much-loved actor Stephen Mangan and talented artist Anita Mangan, creators of Top 10 Fiction Bestsellers Escape the Rooms, The Fart That Changed the World and The Great Reindeer Rescue. 

Timothy Trench finds it difficult to make decisions, so when he is plunged down a toilet into the land that jokes come from, because he has been mistaken for straight-talking, uber-decisive child business prodigy Tim OC Trench, he knows he’s in trouble. The queen of the country has completely lost her sense of humour and the people need Timothy to uncover the funniest joke in the land as their last shot at making her laugh and restoring new-joke-production to full strength. Imagine a world where the only jokes are stale old Dad jokes – disaster!

  • Wildly funny, delightfully imaginative storytelling with a message that any kid can be a hero!
  • Packed with pictures by Stephen Mangan’s sister Anita Mangan.
  • Escape the Rooms, The Fart That Changed the World and The Great Reindeer Rescue have been huge bestsellers: Stephen and Anita are comic dynamite.

    Stephen on writing for children (interview on ITV’s Lorraine):
    “Every page has to grip them, make them laugh, be interesting because they can drop it. There are screens everywhere that they can pick up. That’s part of the reason why I started writing books because I had such fun as a kid reading books. I always had my head in a book. I wanted to write books that were unputdownable for children, that were full of adventure and crazy big characters and made them laugh.”
