Hamish and the Worldstoppers
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
How is a ten year old boy supposed to ward off a horde of marauding monsters plundering through Britain's fourth most boring town?
When Hamish notices the world pause for everyone except himself, he starts to investigate. He discovers that World-stopping monsters are taking the grownups and returning them mean and violent - or not returning them at all. Perhaps these monsters took his dad away?
Soon Hamish teams up with other children who are 'Pausewalkers'. Why are they unaffected when the world stops? Why are the pauses getting longer and are they leading up to one final dreadful event?!
This is a gripping read; it's disgusting and bizarre, thought-provoking and funny, genuine characters taking on a surreal world.
