This madcap comedy-adventure series is completely hectic – and also heart-warming, ridiculously funny and wildly addictive! One day, Joshie is eating breakfast when a fancy robot thingy arrives in a box.

The cool thing? It’s actually an incredibly sophisticated droid. The not-so-cool thing? It’s programmed to babysit Joshie while his mum is at work (which is ALL THE TIME).

Joshie has scared off a LOT of babysitters, but that’s only because he DOESN’T NEED A BABYSITTER. And he has big plans to get rid of this one too. But he’s not counting on Droid Dude being kinda fun – or all the whole new level of sticky, icky messes you can get into when your babysitter has an off switch!

An irrepressible and assured debut from hot new talent Joshie Lefers.


Joshie is 10 years old and he doesn't need a babysitter. At least, that’s what Joshie thinks. Unfortunately for Joshie, his scientist mum disagrees.

But when a huge box marked TOP SECRET arrives one morning, Joshie can’t help but open it, even though Mum said he had to wait until after school.

So begins a hilarious, completely hectic, crazy and funny adventure that you will love.

This is the first of four books in this series, and it will be a hit with those who love a laugh when they read. It is also heart warming, with characters that are great fun.

This series is sure to be a winner with those starting out on chapter books.
