“Wildly over the top and satisfying” The Observer New Review Children’s Book of the Month


Humzar has been having a few problems keeping out of trouble with his wayward pals so his Dad is taking charge and sending him to a special school in Pakistan. As you can guess things go wildly out of control and as always chaos unfurls in this hilarious new adventure.


But why listen to us bleating on about it, here’s little Badman himself to tell you a little more…


‘You’ve probably heard of me, right? Little Badman. No? Oh. Well . . . doesn’t Matter. You will do one day. I’m gonna be big.’

I’m Humza Khan, the greatest eleven-year-old rapper Eggington ever had. I’ve also faced deadly alien slugs, killer aunties and double maths.

But now, I (and my best friend Umer I guess) face something even scarier – my dad! He’s pretty fed up with us being naughty, so he’s sending us away . . . to school.

But this is not ordinary school. This is a special summer school in Pakistan, and man something weird is going on – someone has been messing with time!

Here is a selection of some of our favourite illustrations from this hilarious new book.
