The Lovereading4Kids comment

In this the second in the series Charlie loves being a spook but his latest mission is his most baffling too because he must work out what a giant rat that’s haunting boys down on Earth is really up to. Charlie and his friend Lewis are in for a massive shock.

This is a fantastically humorous series from a widely admired children’s author who really knows how to get readers hooked on reading. With black and white illustrations throughout the series can’t fail to inspire.

Charlie is now a fully-fledged member of Spook Squad and ready for his most puzzling mission yet - to investigate a rat which expands as you watch it into a giant and terrifying monster! At first Charlie and his friend, Lewis, think that they're dealing with a mysterious and terrifying ghost, but they're in for a big surprise.

About the Author

Pete Johnson

When Pete Johnson was ten, he wrote a fan letter to Dodie Smith – author of The Hundred and One Dalmatians. She wrote back to him and the two began exchanging letters. “She was the first person to encourage me to become a writer,” says Pete, who began sending stories to publishers at the age of eleven.

Born in Winchester, Pete studied English at Birmingham University and went on to try a variety of jobs before teaching English and Drama at a secondary school in Buckinghamshire. It was there that he wrote his first novel for teenagers which became an immediate hit. He was a film critic for Radio One before becoming a full time writer.

Pete's novels have achieved global success and he is now published in 24 translations. He has visited Europe to meet his readers as well as schools and libraries all over the UK. Pete inspires a special loyalty among his readers.

Pete says: 'one of the best things an author can do is show the reader he, or she, is not on their own.'
