Another fast and fun adventure about life, death and all the hilarity in between . . .
Jim is getting to grips with his father's rather unusual job at the Dead End Office and is keeping the truth secret as a promise to Dad. But when Jim sees that Will's grandma is next on the list of Death Dates, he springs into action. Even though Granny Maggot is smelly, mean-spirited and VERY unfriendly, his best friend Will adores her. Jim has to do something!
If the boys can keep Will's granny safe until midnight, can they save her life?
Rachel Delahaye (Author) Rachel Delahaye got told off for talking in class quite a lot. That's because she loves words. After studying linguistics in Wales, very near a town called Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (which is a great word), she began a career in print journalism. Nowadays, when she's not playing Boggle, Scrabble or Balderdash, she writes children's books. Jamie Littler (Illustrator) Jamie Littler is the creator of the comic series Cog and Sprokit which is serialised in The Phoenix Comic. He has also illustrated a number of children's books including the world-renowned Famous Five by Enid Blyton. He finds this the most splendid and outrageously fantastic job in the world (and yes, he is aware of Ostrich Racing).
