From the publisher:
Odd things happen to Archie every day. Some very odd things. On Monday, a piano rolls down the hill and traps his new friend Cyd in her mum’s car. And then a lorry tips a load of gravel on top of it. At least Cyd finds it exciting. Though of course she doesn’t believe that this sort of thing happens to Archie every day. Until Tuesday, when Archie finds a dead dog in his pocket . . . Poor Archie. But as he soon discovers, if odd things have to happen to him, it’s a lot better if they happen when Cyd's around. Join Archie and Cyd for a whole week’s worth of completely surprising and outrageously funny escapades.
Meet Archie, the boy whose life is anything but boring! With Archie, a walk to the shops for milk can turn into an unforgettable adventure. In this book we follow Archie for one week, and on each day things get more and more preposterous. Needless to say, Archie's Mum wonders why Archie can't seem to complete any of the errands he is sent on.
