In a nutshell: action-packed, slime-filled fun early reader

Set inside the world of a computer game, the Goozillas series offers non-stop action, fun characters, and jokes galore (the more cringe-worthy the better as far as fans are concerned), all of it liberally drenched with goo and snot: irresistible stuff therefore for a large swathe of young readers. Bright, lively, cartoon-style illustrations add to its appeal. The plot pitches Max and his friends the Goozillas against various enemies led by the thoroughly wicked Bubble Kitten of the Sicklies and this episode features a kung-fu fighting hamster to add to the frenetic fun. The chapter titles - Tanks A Lot, Towers of Terror, Angry Blobs – say it all and guarantee an unbeatable reading experience for those who like their books fast, funny, and friendly. ~ Andrea Reece


The Goozillas!: Attack on Fungus Fort by Barry Hutchison

Gooey and green - the ultimate team! Meet the Goozillas! When max accidentally sneezes himself into his World of Slime computer game, he comes face to face with the Goozillas that live there ...the Goozillas that he created! This is going to be the best adventure EVER! But all is not well in the World of Slime. The Goozillas are under attack from the cute-but-evil Sicklies, with their big eyes, soft fur, and deadly powers. The Sicklies have taken over Fungus Fort and it's up to Max and his gooey friends to reclaim it, but how are they ever going to get over that enormous wall with its barbed wire defences? Well, there are some advantages to being super-stretchy ...Exciting adventures illustrated throughout in full colour. Perfect for young readers.
