£14.99

Product description

Meet Jack. Jack is an ordinary boy who lives in an ordinary house in an ordinary Australian suburb. Like many children, Jack likes playing computer games, watching television and eating take-away food. Jack is also seriously overweight. But this doesn't make him any less ordinary. Presently 25 per cent of Australian children are seriously overweight and, if current trends continue, this figure is predicted to rise to 40 percent by the year 2020. Through a series of involving and extremely funny fictional monologues, bestselling children's author Andy Griffiths brings Jack's world alive. Supplemented with practical advice from both a personal trainer and a nutritionist, this book provides concerned parents with an invaluable resource for creating a healthier, more vital life for both their children and themselves.
