Yikes! After causing a whole lot of chaos at his sister’s wedding in Mayhem Mission, Yusuf only goes and messes up again…This second book in Burhana Islam’s My Laugh-Out-Loud Life series is a treat for fans of fast-paced funny fiction, with Farah Khandaker’s illustrations further amplifying the fun factor.

When an unfortunate food fight incident with Bashir the Basher (Enemy Number 1) gets Yusuf and his friends into big trouble with the Imam, he decides to restore his family’s honour by running for Form Captain. But the problem is (one of many, to be honest), he’s running against Bashir amidst rumours that he’s an “almost-murderer”. Given that Bashir has done a deal with notorious school prankster The Masked Trickster, Yusuf has his work cut out to deliver a vote-winning campaign, which means readers are in for a comic caper of colossal proportions.

Infused with a strong sense of friendship and trying to do the right thing, The Dastardly Duo is driven by zany, page-turning humour and a whole lot of heart.
