Suitable for reading age 8.6 years. Mark was holding his knee. His trousers were torn, and I expected to see loads of blood where he'd cut himself - but there was none of that. Mark's skin was ripped back and, inside his knee, there was a long, metal bar and loads of coloured wires. Al loves hanging out with his new friend Mark Tenby at school. Some of the other students think he's a bit odd, but Mark and Al have so much in common. It isn't until a game of football goes wrong that Al starts to understand quite how odd Mark really is...

Tommy Donbavand was born and brought up in Liverpool. As he was never picked for the football, cricket or rugby teams - he spent most of his school days sitting on substitutes' benches, writing spooky stories in which the more popular kids around him were attacked and devoured by disgusting monsters. Years later, he's still doing just that - only now people pay him for it! The fools!More About Tommy Donbavand
