Thomas Framnes and Joachim Berg (ill.)
The most unfortunate boy in the world

For boys and girls who like to read humourous and richly illustrated books.

It’s not easy being William. Constantly haunted by bad luck, he finds himself in one crisis after another. Like when William tries to sneak into school unnoticed, but
ends up being chased by an ostrich in front of his class, wearing nothing but his underpants! Or when he hoped for an electric guitar, but ends up with a recorder - and is forced to perform in front of the entire school!

But nothing beats Williams middle name: "Laudfahrt." It’s probably Dutch, from his weird father. In the Netherlands, they also like to shorten names like William. So when Dad comes to visit, he shouts in the schoolyard: "William Laudfahrt! Willy Laudfahrt! »

Welcome to William Laudfahrt’s’ nightmare. You´re lucky you only have to read about it.
