Granny Samurai is back for a second hilarious and thrilling adventure. And she is still not to be messed with! As before, Samuel Johnson tells the story of his unusual next door neighbour who drives a truck and keeps a top secret nano-thruster hidden in her wooden leg. This time Granny Samurai and Samuel go searching for Samuel’s best-friend Philip who is lost in another dimension. Will they be able to bring Philip back safely? It all looks very dangerous!

Granny Samurai and the Brain of Ultimate Doomitude by John Chambers
I have not long now. The fire is dying and I can hear their teeth rattling in the darkness... When eccentric young wordsmith Samuel Johnson stumbles upon a page torn from an ancient notebook bearing these words, his interest is piqued. And the words seem to have a strange effect on Granny Samurai, leaving Samuel with an uncomfortable sense of looming doom. He doesn't have long to wait for his fears to be realized: on the day of Samuel's birthday party his friend Philip is accidentally sucked through an errant wormhole. Before you can say Megawocka! Samuel and Granny Samurai are on a dangerous rescue mission that leads them to a mysteriously bleak island in another dimension. But wait, that's not an island - isn't that a giant, pulsating...brain?
It features a hilarious new voice in children's writing, reminiscent of Clement Freud's classic Grimble series. It includes all the ingredients to engage and entertain young boy readers - action, humour and a few science facts thrown in for good measure! It is highly illustrated in black and white by the author.
