Synopsis

Freaky and Fearless: How to Tell a Tall Tale by Robin Etherington

The FREAKY comic world collides with three FEARLESS kids in an explosion of fun, action, laughs and adventure! Simon Moss is just an ordinary boy who loves action comics and wishes he were brave enough to star in one. Mossy is a gifted storyteller though and his best friend Whippet is a prolific, imaginative artist who is also fanatical about comics, the really freaky ones. It's up to the world's coolest girl, craftiest inventor and smallest explorer - Lucy Shufflebottom - to kick the boys into gear as they hunt the mysterious shadowy beast that has kidnapped Mossy's younger sister. Can they track down the monster? And what exactly is it, anyway?! A magical, hilarious and highly-illustrated adventure perfect for fans of TOM GATES and DORK DIARIES

Reviews

If you are enjoying the prospect of comic book / graphic novel reading then dip into and enjoy the first in a new series from Piccadilly Press (...) In this freaky comic world you will collide with three fearless kids and a cool inventor as you try to track down a monster whose identity is unknown! * Armadillo Magazine * The writing style of the book itself was very unique. It was a quick read but one that had me turning the pages needing to know how it all ended. * Much Loved Books *
