A fast and furious comedy by the author of Totally Unsuitable for Children. Poor Sam Pratt is an anxious boy. The world is packed with potential dangers, and his Secret Book of Worries is filling up fast. But now he's really got something to worry about. His dad is bankrupt and in a week the bank will repossess their home. And the one thing that could save them - an old and valuable painting - has been stolen from Mr Pratt's shop by professional con man and all-round sleaze-bag, Mr Swineway. Ably assisted by his best friend Tasty Hasty and technological genius World Wide Webber, Sam sets out to recover the painting and save his house. But can he do it in time?
