About the Book
Nit Boy is a fast-paced, funny book for kids aged 7+.
It’ll make you laugh. It’ll make you cry. It’ll make you itch.
Meet Lewis Snow. He has the worst case of nits in world history. Everyone wants him to shave his head. But Lewis thinks of his nits as pets. He’s determined to keep his hair and his nits, whatever it takes. Ned lives on Lewis’s head. He’s the first-ever jumping nit. His dad wants Ned to help nits take over the world. But Ned likes it on Lewis’s head. Ned’s vegan and hates the taste of human blood. And you thought you had problems. Two Nit Boy stories in one book!
