Granny Samurai is back for a second hilarious and thrilling adventure. And she is still not to be messed with! As before, Samuel Johnson tells the story of his unusual next door neighbour who drives a truck and keeps a top secret nano-thruster hidden in her wooden leg. This time Granny Samurai and Samuel go searching for Samuel’s best-friend Philip who is lost in another dimension. Will they be able to bring Philip back safely? It all looks very dangerous!
I have not long now. The fire is dying and I can hear their teeth rattling in the darkness... When eccentric young wordsmith Samuel Johnson stumbles upon a page torn from an ancient notebook bearing these words, his interest is piqued. And the words seem to have a strange effect on Granny Samurai, leaving Samuel with an uncomfortable sense of looming doom. He doesn't have long to wait for his fears to be realized: on the day of Samuel's birthday party his friend Philip is accidentally sucked through an errant wormhole. Before you can say Megawocka! Samuel and Granny Samurai are on a dangerous rescue mission that leads them to a mysteriously bleak island in another dimension. But wait, that's not an island - isn't that a giant, pulsating...brain?
