The Clan of the Scorpion are escorting their mentor, Grandmaster One Eye, to a Kung Fu Grandmaster Meet deep in the mountains of Chile, when they are ambushed by a horde of enormous spiders - the Trained Tarantulas of Santiago! But the eight-legged creeps are a cunning diversion, and the Clan soon realise that Grandmaster One Eye has been katnapped! The Clan sets out to follow the attackers south, all the way to a colossal mountain fortress in icy Antarctica - but will they reach One Eye before the trail runs ...cold?

Reviews

Praise for the Ninja Meerkats series:

'Great books for boys.' - Parents in touch

'I think that all the four meerkats are really cool. My favourite one is Donnie because he has all the cool gadgets.' - Cameron, pupil at Marian Vian Primary School

“I liked the style that you write the book in. And I like the idea of Ninja Meerkats. Clan of the Scorpion was a very funny book. My favourite bit was when all four ninjas were in a suitcase with holes that they could see out of.” - Luke, pupil at Marian Vian Primary School

About the Author

Gareth P. Jones

Gareth first started writing when he was very young but it wasn’t until he was in his early twenties that he completed his first novel. Having had it universally rejected, he wrote a novel for children called Who Killed Charlie Twig, which received an equally unimpressed reception and remains rightly unpublished to this day. Some years passed during which Gareth met his future wife, Lisa and began a career in TV. Working on shows such as 'The Big Breakfast' and 'Richard & Judy', he became side-tracked from his book writing ambitions until one day he found himself having lunch at the offices of Bloomsbury. He mentioned the unpublished book to a nice lady called Sarah, who politely suggested that he should send in the first three chapters for her to look at. Gareth returned home and excitedly told his wife this news, who gently explained that the book he had written actually wasn’t very good, but reminded him that he had recently begun work on a much better idea. This turned out to be good advice.

In 2007 Bloomsbury published the first of four books in the series The Dragon Detective Agency and have since published The Thornthwaite Inheritance, Space Crime Conspiracy and The Considine Curse, for which he won the Blue Peter Book of the Year 2012. Gareth has also written a shorter story, Perry’s 5, published by Barrington Stoke and a series of books called Ninja Meerkats, published by Stripes.

The Case of the Missing Cats was nominated for the Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize. The Thornthwaite Inheritance has won the Hounslow Junior Book Award, the Calderdale Book Award, Leicester Children’s Book Award, Sefton Super Reads, Doncaster Book Award, Rotherham Children’s Book Award and Fantastic Book Award, Lancaster.

Gareth now divides his time between writing books, producing TV programmes, spending time with his wife and children, and playing the slightly ludicrous number of stringed instruments in his front room. He lives in Forest Hill, south east London.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
