(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Following the breakout success of his instant festive classic, The Night I Met Father Christmas, get ready for the brilliant new novel from comedian, actor and bestselling author, Ben Miller!

`Stories are often about someone who does a Bad Thing, and this is no exception...'

Harrison tries his best to be good. He doesn't steal from shops, he shares with his sister and he never cheats at board games... but Harrison also has a BIG flaw.

He can't control his temper!

So when he's given a black hole instead of a balloon at a party, he seizes the chance to get rid of everything that makes him cross.

But when it's not just things he hates that are disappearing into the black hole but things he loves, too, Harrison realises that sometimes you should be careful what you wish for...
