Product description

An epic sci-fi creepfest by the Holes genius. Maybe you’re scared of heights. Or the dark. But we bet you’re not scared of mud. Uh-oh… If you go down to the woods today – well, hello! Every kid knows not to do THAT, right? When Marshall and Tamaya walk to the elite Woodridge Academy together, they never go through the woods. Until one day, chased by a bully, they rush off into the forbidden forest. Big mistake. Something scary is waiting. Rather handily, it may just have eaten bullying Chad. Trouble is, it might also eat the whole town. The mutant mud is coming. Dig a hole and hide. (But take this.)

  • New from the brilliantly gifted author of Holes
  • A funny shocker which mixes frights with real heart
  • Louis Sachar’s books have sold millions of copies
  • He has won the Newbery Medal and National Book Award

    Amazing Book

    This book is amazing.
    When you start reading it it sounds like a very boring book, but If you keep reading on It gets very exciting and Interesting.
    It is about a girl called Temiah and her friend Martial,
    When Temiah throws the Dangerous Fuzzy mud at Chad,
    Everything goes WRONG!
