Twenty-Nil and other disasters

Hilary Hawkes spins another dazzling tale in this crazy adventure. Breakfast is always chaotic in Jason's home. Not the best time to try to explain that you've started turning invisible overnight! The events of the rest of the day don't get any more sensible: Jason has to rescue his best friend, George, from the clutches of the quiz-show obsessed Dr Brillbot. Then there's his sister's football team, who desperately need a hand to avoid another disasterous result they are sure they are heading for that day. And all of this before tea-time!

Twenty-Nil and other disasters is a hilarious oddball tale that sweeps the reader up on an irresistable roller-coaster adventure, right from page one.
