The Extremely Weird Thing that Happened in Huggabie Falls
Publisher: Text Publishing
Can you imagine living in the weirdest town in the world, ever? Are you imagining that your teacher is a warty witch who arrives at school on her broomstick? And are you scared she will turn you into a toilet seat if your homework isn’t finished?
If the answer to these questions is "Yes", then maybe you’ve already heard about Huggabie Falls, where there is a topless hill, a bottomless lake and a train tunnel to nowhere. In Huggabie Falls, weirdness is wonderful!
But then, one day, something happens that is so weird that it goes right off the end of the weirdness chart. But what exactly is it and can anything be done to stop it?
In this utterly nonsensical but strangely compelling story, a trio of young supersleuths must navigate piranha-infested waters, outwit a creepy scientist, fight off killer vampire bats and use some rather dangerous experimental chemicals in an attempt to save their town.
Numerous comical deviations by the author and cartoon-style illustrations help maintain the frantic pace of an original and engaging look at family and belonging.
