Editor reviews

Acclaimed Australian children's book author Paul Jennings shares stories of talking skulls, runaway cows, flying dogs, magical tattoos, and remote controls that can change the world as easily as the channel. Jennings' writing is vivid and imaginative, and performer Stig Wemyss rises to the challenge of creating unique voices for each eccentric character. These nine stories form a wonderful cabinet of curiosities for older kids and young adults, with enough thrills and chills to engage the imagination while remaining sensitive and humane.

Summary

Stare, if you dare, into Paul Jennings' wild world.

Can your dog fly? Could a tattoo run away? What's it like inside a dead whale? How could a remote control work on people?

Nine stories that you would never dream of. From one of Australia's most popular authors.
