What lurks in the shadows under the bed? The new adventure from the author of The Christmasaurus is a spine-tingling mystery that introduces readers to some rather sticky, stinky monsters.
A creepy, spooky and (just a little bit) yucky adventure from Tom Fletcher, bestselling author of The Danger Gang and The Christmasaurus!
Lucy Dungston has woken up to find all the grown-ups in her town have disappeared.
Lucy's friends are thrilled there are no more grown-ups. They're running wild! They're building roads of trampolines, and eating cereal for every meal.
But Lucy wants her mum back, and nothing is going to stop her.
Even if it means having to venture into the strange, upside-down world of the mysterious monsters under her bed!
And the upside-down world isn't the most hygienic of places . . .
Tom Fletcher's bestselling story is packed with amazing illustrations by the disgustingly talented Shane Devries.
Praise for The Creakers:
'A stonkingly good novel for the over-sevens . . . gleeful descriptions of malodorous underworld creatures, it's both a compelling adventure and a nuanced celebration of friendship and family love' The Guardian
'The illustrations are stunning and the storyline is full of twists and great ideas' R Patterson, Toppsta Reviewer
'10 out of 10 bum trumps!' Guff the Creaker
