Sally Prue is the award-winning author of Cold Tom (Branford Boase Award 2002). She has also written for A&C Black in the White Wolves series.
The plot of the book is another unexpected treat for readers and is very well thought-out, with adventure and trouble on every page. And it's very, very funny. This book certainly deserves a spot on any shelf, as a reading stepping stone between Horrid Henry and Harry Potter.

Prue writes so well. She's so zingy and inventive and the illustrations by Loretta Schauer fit perfectly with this zany and delicious story... Buy for your school classroom. Buy for your child.... enjoy!

Loretta Schauer's illustrations punctuate short chapters with cartoons of Sirens with 1960s hairdos and fangs, a troll with an itchy scalp, and a classroom invaded by a sea serpent.

The stories in the series are varied but always well written and there's plenty to appeal to different tastes.
