Product Description

A darkly comic fantasy thriller by Anthony Horowitz. Rich kid Tad is spoilt and thoughtless; the boy who has everything. But one night he wishes he could be someone else – and wakes up in the body of Bob Snarby, a petty crook living in the shabbiest funfair imaginable. It’s a squalid place inhabited by hopeless criminals, mysterious fortune tellers and – worst of all – the murderous Finn. But Tad is there for a reason, as he discovers when he begins to untangle a secret that introduces him to the most unexpected enemy of all… Fast-paced, funny and scary, this is a brilliantly entertaining roller-coaster read.

Anthony Horowitz started writing because he wanted to be like Tintin. He has now travelled to all the places that Tintin has been – apart from the moon!

His Alex Rider series is one of the most popular children’s book series ever, and the first Alex Rider book, Stormbreaker, became a major Hollywood film. In 2003, Anthony won the Red House Children’s Book Award (voted for by children) for Skeleton Key.

He is also the author of the highly acclaimed Diamond Brothers detective stories, as well as the bestselling The Power of Five books, which were inspired by a simple thought. “Isn’t it more exciting to imagine these great battles with all their magic and mystery happening in the very high street where you live, just out of the corner of your eye?”

Anthony lives in central London with his wife Jill Green, a TV producer, and their sons Nicholas and Cassian. His whole family gets involved in his writing. Jill has produced several of Anthony’s scripts, including the drama serial Foyle’s War, which won the Lew Grade Audience Award in 2003. His son Cassian is already a seasoned actor, having appeared in three of his shows, and Nicholas, his oldest son, has helped Anthony to research the Alex Rider books by trying his hand at everything from scuba-diving to snowboarding and surfing!

In 2013, Anthony was awarded an OBE for services to literature..

    This is one of the best books that I have ever read! My faveourite part is when the boy realises that his father tests products on humans. This book shows the different lifes that people lead. It was a good ending when they were good friends.( Plus the discription was very good.)

    This book is good for people who LOVE a twist. I think the storyline linked quite well to the characters. The way it was written is what I liked. I sort of liked it.
