Editorial Reviews

In this wacky series from Morris Gleitzman and Paul Jennings - both acclaimed Australian children’s authors - unhappy step-siblings Dawn and Rory find themselves beset by all manner of gross, yucky, creepy, nasty, and downright funky creatures! Unable to depend on grownups for help, these two quick-minded kids must bicker and battle and their way to safety alone!

Voice actors Kate Hosking and Stig Wemyss throw themselves wholeheartedly into an energetic performance of this short story, deftly navigating its twists and turns, and injecting this audiobook with intensity and humor guaranteed to keep kids on their toes and listening breathlessly until the very end.

Publisher's Summary

"'There he is', Gramps shrieked. 'The Spy. The scumbag spy.' I looked up and saw a monstrous white hairy face disappear into the drain. I had never seen such a frightening sight. White hair covered its entire head. I couldn't even see any eyes. In a flash Gramps splashed into the drain after it."

It's WICKED! It won't let you go. And it's bringing you closer to the end.

Critic Reviews

"In this wildly inventive, highly original series the children must think things through and save themselves and their loved ones. The series is performed with great energy by Kate Hosking and Stig Wemyss. American middle school readers will enjoy these zany and terrifying adventures." (AudioFile)
