A jam-fuelled week of disaster is set in motion by a single doughnut!
Roman Garstang is obsessed with food - particularly Squidgy Splodge raspberry-jam doughnuts - but he is about to learn that things are not always as sugar-coated as they might seem. Because of his Monday-morning jam doughnut, Roman's week takes a very sticky turn . . .

Who knew jam could be so deadly?
