As hilarious and ridiculous as its title might lead you to expect, this is a rollercoaster of a ride as Casper Candlewick sets out to ‘save the day’! Why the day needs saving and how it is done is a ludicrous romp of a story which takes quite a lot of following! Casper Candlewacks is the only boy with any sense in a village full of idiots! A hilarious debut novel from the funniest new voice in young fiction. But don't just take our word for it! Jeremy Strong has hailed it a funny and engaging debut as well. Loads of illustrations help to make it all a little bit clearer!

About Ivan Brett

Ivan was born in Edinburgh in 1989, in a bike shop, or so he thought for a good chunk of his childhood. As a Philosophy undergraduate at Bristol University he spent his spare time scribbling on the backs of bus tickets, crisp packets, or whatever else he could get his hands on. Thankfully these scribbles ended up becoming a book. He now lives in Winchester and is a full time writer.
