Son of Grim (Jim Reaper #1)
You might have heard how the universe began with the Big Bang? Well, the universe as Jim Wimple knows it is about to end. With a Bazoom! Not only are Bazoom! scooters super fast and deadly cool, but fierce (and swoonsome) older girl Fiona has just started riding hers to and from school, and possibly out of Jim's life forever. Disaster! Jim Wimple needs a Bazoom!, and fast. So he and his best friend Will devise a clever scheme, which involves having to sneak into Dad's workplace. But when the boys break into the Mallet Mullet 'accountancy' office they find that the walls are lined with ancient portraits, the staff are highly secretive, and Jim's dad's office bears the sign 'G Reaper'...And then all hell really breaks loose. What would YOU do if you thought your dad might be ...Death?! Illustrated with cool art by HAMISH artist Jamie Littler.
Is Jim's dad hiding a deadly secret?
This is a great book, because it is sooooooooo funny and it has a great concept and plot. It is full of mystery, and will definitely make it high on my end of year list! Mango Bubbles Book Blog
Rachel Delahaye got told off for talking in class quite a lot. That's because she loves words. After studying Linguistics in a town called Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (which is a great word), she began a career in print journalism. Nowadays, when she's not playing Boggle, Scrabble or Balderdash, she writes children's books.Jamie Littler is the creator of the comic series Cogg and Sprokit which is serialised in The Phoenix Comic. He has also illustrated a number of children's books including the world-renowned Famous Five by Enid Blyton. Jamie finds this the most splendid and outrageously fantastic job in the world (and yes, he is aware of Ostrich Racing).
