Nit Boy

They’ll make you laugh

They’ll make you cry

They’ll make you itch…

What is Nit Boy About?

The two Nitboy books, Lift Off and Bug Out are about a kid called Lewis who has the worst case of nits in world history. Lewis has thousands of nits. His teachers and mum want to shave his head but Lewis has had nits so long that he’s kind of attached to them. He sees them as his pets. 

Meanwhile, in the dense forest on Lewis’s head, Ned, the first-ever jumping louse, has just been born. And the nits are poised to take over the town, the country, the world.

It’s a David and Goliath battle as Lewis tries to hang on to his hair and his ‘head mice’ no matter what it takes.
