It's the End of the World as We Know It

Written by Saci Lloyd

It's the End of the World as We Know It Synopsis

Welcome to a world controlled by a megalomaniac Lolcat. A world where data pirates, zombies and infobots on surfboards roam free. A world at war over cheese ...When teenager Mikey Malone gets sucked through a wormhole into this parallel world, he discovers a power-crazed corporation is planning to use Earth as a dumping ground for an uncontrollable poisonous algae. It's a race against time for Mikey and his rebel friends to stop the ruthless tyrants from getting their way. A laugh-out-loud-funny new sci-fi series from Costa-shortlisted author Saci Lloyd, perfect for devotees of Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams.
