The Lovereading4Kids comment

Wild humour and a love of all things unexpected and unusual propel this cleverly interwoven story written by Australia’s two funniest writers. Told in the two distinct voices of Amy who, on her birthday discovers none of the surprises she had hoped for but a series of unexpected occurrences after she hides herself in the boot of her father’s car and Spocket who finds himself naked in the jungle and in grave danger. Each story is told in a series of short, fast-paced captures that make this a totally captivating read. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Deadly! by Morris Gleitzman, Paul Jennings

Reviews

When Amy arrives home for her birthday tea, her parents have vanished and in their place is a baby she's never seen before. At around the same time, Sprocket wakes up naked on a deserted mountainside and realises he has lost his memory. Another imaginative Gleitzman/Jennings collaboration following the huge success of Wicked!
