Hey kids! (And grown-ups, for that matter.) Have you ever wondered what it would be like if your best friend was really the Death of Children?
Sound a bit grim?
Not at all! Especially if you join Johnny and Eddie, as they travel to the magical world of Deathville on the most unusual ghost train ever invented, to try and save the world from evil Uncle Lucius — the oldest, wisest and ultimately, baddest of all the Deaths.
In an amazing journey that sees the two brave young soul-searchers conquer the Impassable Mountains, rescue Eddie’s dad from a fate worse than, well… death, and face the unspeakable terror that is the void, being a spirit has never been this much fun!
Helped along the way by a medieval knight on a shining white horse and a Victorian school girl, who seems to know an awful lot for someone so young, the only questions are: Will Johnny and Eddie, armed only with a solitary diamond rivet, be able to stop Uncle Lucius before he destroys everything that they’ve ever known, and will they be able to get back to Earth in time for tea?
Death and the Schoolboy. It’s a rollercoaster ride through a world that you never knew existed. So, jump on board and join the adventure. Just make sure that you keep your lifeband on!
‘Death and the Schoolboy’ is a fast-paced and exciting children’s action and adventure tale, which forms the first part of the DATS Trilogy. Magical and most definitely not morbid, it will also appeal to preteens and all those who are still young at heart.
About the Author
R.A. Gregory (a.k.a. Robin Alexander Gregory or just plain old Rob Gregory) is an author and animal welfare consultant who splits his time predominantly between Northern Thailand and New Zealand, writing books, helping people to help animals and generally trying to live as contrarian a life as is possible. Consequently, he aspires to no particular genre or style, just tries to write stories that he hopes will make people smile a bit and think about how absurd the world really is (and how much better it would be if he were in charge).
