It Wasnít Me by Michael Bond
Doubleday ISBN 9780857534309

Harry Manners is a very unusual boy. He doesn't think there is anything unusual about him - he's just inquisitive about, well, everything. He is happy with his Max Masters comics and his imaginary pet pig but in the meantime drives his parents and teachers to distraction. At home, at school and even in church you just never know what might be about to happen. Inspired by his own grandson, this is the latest book from this celebrated author who is very perceptive about the behaviour of humans as well as bears from Peru.
