Ravening zombie hordes and swarms of power-hungry alien dwarfs are just some of the disasters the town of Sitting Duck has faced.
But danger never sleeps and a new evil genius has arisen, and he's planning world domination with the aid of his home-made brainwashing device! Are Sam, Arty and Emmie brave enough to save the day?
If they aren't, everyone - including you, dear reader - will totally lose their minds!
R. McGeddon is absolutely sure the world is almost certainly going to probably end very soon. A strange, reclusive fellow - so reclusive, in fact, that no one has ever seen him, not even his mum - he plots his stories using letters cut from old newspapers, then posts them to award-winning author, Barry Hutchison, to type up. Barry is not entirely sure why he has been chosen, but he considers it his duty to get R. McGeddon's apocalyptic tales out there. Also, he's too scared to say no.
The suspiciously happy, award-winning illustrator Jamie Littler hails from the mysterious, mythical southern lands of England. It is said that the only form of nourishment he needs is to draw, which he does on a constant basis. This could explain why his hair grows so fast. When he is not drawing, which is a rare thing indeed, he spends time trying to find the drawing pen he just lost. He is down to his lst one. As the sole survivor of the 2008 Tiki Mutant Jellyfish Disaster, Jamie is considered a prime candidate to illustrate the Disaster Diaries.
