The Impossible Boy by Mark Griffiths

Somewhere in the small, dull town of Blue Hills, the impossible is happening. Inanimate objects are coming to life. Time travellers from the future are mingling unnoticed with the shoppers in the high street. School children are developing uncanny powers. Strange creatures are lurking within the grounds of a forgotten stately home. And with each of these mysteries comes a terrible threat that just might endanger the entire world...Fortunately, help is at hand in the form of Gabby Grayling and Barney Watkins aka Geek Inc.! Gabby and Barney are set to investigate.

Reviews

The X-Files meets Dr Who in this hilarious series from Mark Griffiths. Full to the brim with fun, mysteries and oddities. The Bookbag

PRAISE FOR SPACE LIZARDS STOLE MY BRAIN!

“Very funny... loaded with goofy characters, daft situations and laugh-outloud
lines. Douglas Adams himself would have relished the surly triceratops
who goes on a rampage towards the end” Financial Times

“I think this is a great book... it’s exciting and funny. I would recommend
this book to anyone” Guardian.co.uk

“Wacky fun that will appeal to younger readers.” Parents in Touch
