Featuring Jiggy McCue and his pals Pete and Angie, The Killer Underpants will get every boy and girl aged upwards of 9 years old laughing their clothes off!!! The underpants from hell are taking control and that's only half of it. A pant-tastically funny adventure. Apologies for the pun but rest assured it is.

Get ready boys and girls to laugh your clothes off with the sheer story-telling brilliance of Michael Lawrence and the peculiar misadventures that seem to dog Jiggy McCue. Variously described as funny, wacky, lively, the funniest books ever read, laugh a minute, by turns hilarious and revolting, fantastic and you’ll giggle and laugh until it hurts, these sentiments brilliantly describe what you as a reader are guaranteed to get when you read Jiggy McCue. Join the self-proclaimed Three Musketeers - Jiggy, Pete and Angie as they embark on another hilarious adventure.
