The Nose That Nobody Picked is a book about a ten year old boy named Christopher. Christopher is a keen, but unorthodox gardener who likes to make ornamental displays with gnomes and toys. One day, while he is out gardening, he hears a sneeze. When he goes to check, he finds a living, breathing nose! However, one day to his dismay, he finds that Little Big Nose has been kidnapped...and so the hunt begins!
I love this book because it's packed with humour and each chapter makes you want to read on to find out what happens next. I especially liked the part with the toy soldier swamp and the headless doll zombies. I also like how the nose loves cabbage and lettuce.
This book is very well written and a joy to read. It is suitable for ages 9+. Overall, just a brilliant book!
Creative, humorous, and well-executed. It’s like Kafka meets Douglas Adams and I have to say I wish I had written it first. A most enjoyable book.
