1. 101 really disgusting things
A list of disgusting things, such as brussel sprouts, maggots, shower plughole hair and your parents kissing.
2. Brussel sprouts
Andy REALLY HATES brussel sprouts so when his mother serves him five with his dinner he is understandably horrified. But he has to get rid of them if he wants dessert, and he REALLY WANTS dessert.
3. Go to bed!
Told in verse with at least one footnote per stanza, this story is about Andy's attempts to put off having to go to bed.
4. Cake of doom
A choose-your-own cake-baking adventure in which you, the reader, have to bake a cake for your mum for Mother's Day without dying in 23 cake-baking-related incidents.
5. Two brown blobs
A cartoon story featuring a very young Andy (4 1/2 years old) being terrified by two brown blobs in the bathtub.
6. Shut up!
Andy and family are experiencing a really bad holiday stuck in a caravan in bad weather. Andy and Jen's bickering gets so bad that poor old Dad ends up going outside to read his newspaper in the heavy rain rather than endure their company a moment longer.
7. Fun with Andy and Danny
Written in the style of an early reader, this story features Andy and Danny as very young boys creating mess as they have fun with Sooty (who is just a pup), some toilet paper, a bottle of milk and, eventually after Andy's parents come home, a vacuum cleaner.
A playscript designed to be performed by dead flies, loosely based on Cinderella, but featuring a lot more deadfly puke than the original.
9. The story of the very stupid boy and the very big slug
A sci-fi mystery action thriller adventure romance novel in 36 chapters, this story features the hero (Andy) saving the world from the stupid actions of Danny (the very stupid boy) who—for a school science project—has created a giant slug. Lucky for the world that Andy has created—for the same science project—a working time machine.
Note: Retitled and republished in the UK in 2010 as Help! I'm Being Chased By A Giant Slug and 8 Other Just Disgusting Stories.
