Crane Fly Crash (S.W.I.T.C.H. 5) by Ali Sparkes
Josh and Danny must go on a rescue mission to save their annoying big sister, Jenny, when she accidentally uses the S.W.I.T.C.H spray on herself and turns into a crane fly! The twins know there's only one thing for it - they'll have to change themselves into crane flies too, and try to keep their sister out of trouble. However risky ...Can the boys resist the lure of the light bulb and stop Jenny from getting legless? And will Piddle the dog be able to resist a crunchy, bugtastic snack? Petty Potts's diary entry: Victor Crouch's spies could be anywhere! I keep imagining that old eyebrow-less freak staring through my windows ...But I suppose I do have to remember that sometimes I see and hear things which aren't really there. That's all part of the package when you're a genius. I will make sure Josh and Danny keep very watchful, though. Ah ha! Ah ha ha ha ha! Erm. Scary powerful laugh etc. (It doesn't really work, typed out, does it?)
