Meet Lewis Snow. He has the worst case of nits in world history. His teachers and mum want to shave his head. But Lewis has had nits so long, he thinks of them as pets. The whole town is itching and they want to get rid of Lewis’s nits, whatever it takes.
Ned lives on Lewis’s head. He’s a little nit with a big destiny – the world’s first-ever jumping nit. His dad, the Head Louse, wants Ned to help nits take over the world. Trouble is, Ned’s a stay-at-home kind of guy. He likes it on Lewis’s head. He’s a vegan who hates the taste of human blood.
And you thought you had problems.
NIT BOY WILL YOU MAKE YOU LAUGH.
IT’LL MAKE YOU CRY.
IT’LL MAKE YOU ITCH!
This book was commandeered by my eldest bookworm. She started to read it early one Sunday morning and did not get dressed for the entire day. On handing it back to me her first comment was '5 out of 5 mum.'
