The Danger Gang
Franky is excited when he moves with his family to the small town of Freaky, and quickly makes new friends, although is sad to say goodbye to his best buddy Dani. Mum is particularly happy, as she sets up a Home Science Lab in the garage, where she can work on her weird and wonderful inventions, such as an Auto-Nappy-Changer for baby Max and her new project, an awesome Weather Ray.
All seems normal until, following a terrific storm one night, with flashes of eerie green lightning and a definite whiff of poo, Franky notices a change in the people around him. First, Eric turns into a shark whenever water touches him, then Mollie becomes invisible, and Franky keeps glimpsing shadowy figures lurking at the edge of his vision. Convinced these bizarre occurrences are connected to the storm, he and his new friends form The Danger Gang and make it their mission to investigate the peculiar events.
The tale covers a year in Franky’s life and is set out as a series of letters to Dani. Junior readers will love this larger-than-life adventure, which is fast-paced, full of zany humour and enhanced by wacky black-and-white illustrations throughout.
