Chris Daffey takes us on an hilarious journey through his final year at primary school and his plan to win over the girl of his dreams. A lighthearted memoir of growing up in the Australian 'burbs'. 'Julian Crower was a large child. Not large enough to be considered fat, but fat enough to be considered large. At five feet and three inches, he towered above your average sixth grader and represented the kind of shambling, slow-witted menace that no primary school could be without . . . In a poll conducted at the beginning of grade six, Julian Crowler was voted the second most frightening sight in the playground. Julian Crowler eating a meat pie was voted first.'

This hilarious novel takes us down memory land to grade six primary school - to the games we played and the friendships we formed. To weirdo teachers, schoolyard scuffles and scary moments outside the Principal's office. It's also the story of a crush, and one boy's quest to win over a girl called Jenny.
