Louis Todd is the world’s greatest expert in being told to be quiet. Louis is a loudmouth. He cannot stay quiet for thirty seconds and is constantly in trouble from talking in class.

When Dad wishes both Louis and Gran would stop talking to allow him watch his football videos in peace and quiet, Louis’ idea to raise money for the new school library is born. He decides to hold a sponsored silence for one day. No one believes he can do it but, with the help of his new coach, (his mum), he is determined to become a fly on the wall.
