Summary from Single Ply Publishing
The 1st story of a series of three, the LAUGH OUT LOUD Boomerang book, tells the story of the Tompkins family and their cat Bonkers! Bonkers had an unfortunate accident, which left one of his eyes pointing north and the other one pointing south! The story follows the family and Bonkers through their crazy escapades involving a herd of Muntjac Deer and one particularly mischievous deer called Boomerang!
Who knew 1 deer could cause so much chaos! Mr Tompkins is more than a bit unfortunate - everything that could go wrong does go wrong and then some! It's hardly surprising that few believe his version of events until they have solid proof - by then he has become such a nuisance to his neighbours in the course of trying to put things right so his wife will stop whisking the children off to her mother's that few care for the truth, they just want a decent night's sleep.
Bonkers the cat doesn't feature quite as much as I'd expected but his thoughts add so much to the already laugh out loud humour. This book is definitely great if you need cheering up. Sadly my tablet didn't want to load the illustrations, but the fact that I adore the story on it's own leads me to believe with pictures like the front cover this book is an incredible read.
