From million-copy bestselling author David Baddiel comes a laugh-out-loud story for readers of 8 and up that takes you on a roller-coaster ride of fame and friendship... Nothing extraordinary has ever happened to Billy Smith. In fact, every single thing about him is ordinary, including his name.

But when a documentary crew turns up at Billy's school to film the new TV series School Daze, everything changes. Billy shouldn't stand out: all the other kids are much more interesting than him. But when remixes of his boring class presentation go viral, Billy finds himself accidentally an overnight star.

With his friends Bo and Rinor by his side, his life turns into a whirlwind of red carpets, TV shows, albums and even the possibility of meeting Sunshine De Marto - the coolest girl on the planet. But as everyone knows, fame comes with a price... The Boy Who Got Accidentally Famous is an epically entertaining tale, brought to life with illustrations by the brilliant Steven Lenton, which asks the question - what if everyone suddenly knew your name...?
