Product Description

Two wickedly spooky black comedies from a master of humour and horror. Joe’s Granny is malicious and evil. He’s not exaggerating: she really IS. It’s bad enough that his rich parents are selfish and uncaring, but even worse than them is Granny. She has the look in her eye of a predatory crocodile, and Joe suspects that she has an unpleasant plan for him. But what is it? And when spoilt rich kid Tad wakes up in the body of a petty fairground crook, is there any going back? Perfect for dark nights, these tongue-in-cheek tales are guaranteed to have you chuckling – and looking over your shoulder!

Anthony Horowitz started writing because he wanted to be like Tintin. He has now travelled to all the places that Tintin has been – apart from the moon!

His Alex Rider series is one of the most popular children’s book series ever, and the first Alex Rider book, Stormbreaker, became a major Hollywood film. In 2003, Anthony won the Red House Children’s Book Award (voted for by children) for Skeleton Key.

He is also the author of the highly acclaimed Diamond Brothers detective stories, as well as the bestselling The Power of Five books, which were inspired by a simple thought. “Isn’t it more exciting to imagine these great battles with all their magic and mystery happening in the very high street where you live, just out of the corner of your eye?”

Anthony lives in central London with his wife Jill Green, a TV producer, and their sons Nicholas and Cassian. His whole family gets involved in his writing. Jill has produced several of Anthony’s scripts, including the drama serial Foyle’s War, which won the Lew Grade Audience Award in 2003. His son Cassian is already a seasoned actor, having appeared in three of his shows, and Nicholas, his oldest son, has helped Anthony to research the Alex Rider books by trying his hand at everything from scuba-diving to snowboarding and surfing!

In 2013, Anthony was awarded an OBE for services to literature..
