Frantic, funny new adventure for everyone’s favourite band of popcorn-eating squirrels

Fresh from their first round of adventures, squirrels Ben, Cassie, Alfie and Salty are back, and setting off on a new adventure: dastardly Sir Archibald Kevino Rapscallion Buck has offered a reward of cash and popcorn for life to the first team to cook popcorn on the summit of Everest – when young Alfie is kidnapped by one of the teams, our popcorn-loving heroes dash to the rescue and the Himalayas. Author Matt Dickinson knows Everest well and there’s lots of real information together with a wonderfully wacky race to the summit. New characters include Wilberforce the high-altitude mole, and yes, we even get to meet a yeti! Original and lots of fun, this will really hit the spot with readers who like their adventures fast, action-packed and full of humour.

Popcorn-Eating Squirrels Go Nuts on Everest Synopsis


A million pounds and popcorn for life. This is the incredible prize on offer if a team can meet the challenge: to make popcorn on the very summit of Mount Everest.

The squirrels have their doubts. They could end up as a snack for a snow leopard. What about frostbitten paws? Will the friends even be able to breathe in the thin mountain air?

But when little Alfie is kidnapped and held hostage by one of the Everest teams, the squirrels begin the deadly climb. Can they rescue Alfie? What if the yetis attack? And what about evil Rosalba and the thuggish honey badgers?

It's the popcorn-eating squirrels' greatest adventure yet! Popcorn-Eating Squirrels Go Nuts on Everest - the sequel to Popcorn-Eating Squirrels of the World Unite! by bestselling children's author Matt Dickinson - is a mountain survival epic unlike any other.
