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".

Most villages have an idiot but Casper's village is full of them. So being bright makes poor Casper something of an outsider. When famous magician the Great Tiramisu curses the village, Casper's father is blamed and sentenced to death by pigeon. It's up to Casper and his best friend to find the magician, reverse the curse and save the day.

A riotous tale that proves all you really need in life is a buggy that runs on washing-up liquid and a couple of boys to crash it.
