A boy, a magic book and a bossy boa constrictor - oh, and a VERY smelly gorilla with a zoo escape plan! A fun and fast-paced illustrated chapter book for ages 6-8 from the international bestselling author of The Secret Lake.
When Henry Haynes complains that his new book is boring he falls down into the story and finds himself eyeball-to-eyeball with Brian, a bossy boa constrictor who's in charge of a zoo escape.
Brian won't let Henry return home until he's released the animals, including three hungry lions and Gordon - the very smelly gorilla who masterminded the escape plan. To make matters worse, it looks as if Gordon's out to get Henry...
Can Henry get home alive? And why didn't he just keep his big mouth shut about boring stories?
Includes the first two chapters of Karen Inglis's hilarious page-turner 'Eeek! The Runaway Alien' for free!
