Summary

When Joe tells a local news reporter exactly what he would do if he were leader of the country, the video goes viral, and Joe's speech becomes famous all over the world!

Before long people are calling for the current leader to resign and give someone else a go...and that's how an ordinary boy like Joe ends up with the most extraordinary job. Now the fun can really start!

Theo age 9

I really liked it, it was funny at times and the prime minister was pretty stupid. It was a good book and I'd recommend listening to it or reading it.

Great tween story

Lovely story for tweens, silly but with a sensible message, very good. Not as vulgar as some complain about similar authors

So funny!

You have to ignore the fact that in real life Britian the Prime Minister isn't some kinda unelected all powerful dictator, but when you get past that it's a very funny story, well written and well read with a positive message about being kind and having fun.

Good

This audiobook is very interesting yet it’s too quick to get into the story for me. Otherwise, it’s a great book.
