Synopsis

The Day of the Flying Thumbs by Steve Cole

New girl and boy, Sara and Sam, just want to get through their first day at school without sticking out like sore thumbs, but when real thumbs (and fingers) start turning up in odd places around school, they realize that Freekham High is seriously weird. They need to find out where the dastardly digits are coming from, which isn't easy when you're trying to keep a low profile. And when the lunch special is baked potato with thumbs followed by finger custard, not only are there freaky digits to deal with but the biggest vomit-fest ever! This hilariously surreal story is perfect for readers who prefer their humour a little on the dark side ...
