Summary

Penguin presents the audio download edition of The Creakers by Tom Fletcher, read by Samantha Bond with an introduction by the author.

What silently waits in the shadows at night? What's under your bed, keeping just out of sight?

Do you ever hear strange, creaking noises at night? Ever wonder what makes those noises?

Lucy Dungston always did.

Until, one morning, Lucy discovers that all the grown-ups have disappeared - as if into thin air. Chaos descends as the children in Lucy's town run riot. It's mayhem. It's madness. To most kids, it's amazing!

But Lucy wants to find out the truth. Lucy lost her dad not long ago, and she's determined not to lose her mum too. She's going to get her back - and nothing is going to stop her... except maybe the Creakers.

Two reviews in one - adult and child's opinion

I got this for my son who recently read 'The Christmasaurus' and really enjoyed it. The same wasn't true of this book, sadly. The book constantly breaks the fourth wall, and Fletcher himself keeps interrupting the reading to 'check up on the listener'. It became too confusing for my son to follow, and he gave up, preferring to stare out of the car window as we drove along for the bank holiday weekend - harsh judgement indeed.

As an adult, I found it easier to follow and understood at what point Bond was talking to the listener, and at what point she was dictating the story - and thought she did a good job of reading. But the book wasn't meant for me.

I'm writing this review only half way through the book. I got it for my son, and he has no further interest in it, so I'm returning it. Equally, it would be unfair to mark down the story too much as I don't know the full plot. I found it interesting, but too much of a childs book to listen on myself after my son stopped.
