Summary

Jack Mattingly is a genius. He has an IQ of 170. He speaks fluent Mandarin and Latin. And he can calculate the square root of 1,673,549 in his head. 

But when Jack's parents' car is hi-jacked, with him inside it, for once he's as clueless as the rest of us. The car-jacker doesn't know Jack's in the car - yet. But it's only a matter of time before he's discovered. And then anything could happen. 

Only one thing's for sure: Jack's in for the thrill-ride of his life.... 

A high-octane adventure from the winner of the Blue Peter Book of the Year Award.

Absolutely fantastic book - highly recommend!

This book is fantastic!! Brilliantly written, gripping and hilarious and with lots of unexpected twists and turns. The characters are believable and loveable and we were hooked on how their stories were going to turn out! We were all on the edge of our seats with this one - not wanting to turn it off! Absolutely fantastic book, brilliantly read by the author herself! Highly recommended!

Car jacked, into real life!

Ali Sparkes has written yet another exciting book. In the audio format, the characters come alive with her wonderful narration. The story line, though written for children, is full of twists and turns that make you just want to keep listening in anticipation.

Full of character

This book is rammed full of all Ali does best - a perfect storyline, crafted phrasing, quirky characters, good humour, magical reality and her masterful word play is at it's very best when Ali narrates this fantastic book. Read it, listen to it, share it. You won't be disappointed.
