Diary of an Action Man follows Little Ezra who is on a mission – a mission to rescue his dad. He told his mate Spud that Dad was dead. That wasn’t exactly true, but how else can he explain why Dad isn’t here? Ten year old Ezra believes his father died a war hero, but dreams of his dad’s secret missions are suddenly shattered when he discovers his father is alive and well and living in Manchester. Ezra’s toy action man springs to life when no-one’s looking. Escaping the clutches of his mum, his teacher and his incredibly irritating younger sister, Ezra and his secret comrade jump from helicopters and swim with man-eating sharks before embarking upon their big adventure to find Ezra’s dad.
