Every town has a weirdo. Some ungainly foul smelling soul you cross the street to avoid. But only Notchwood has a Flabberwocky. Dismissed by many as just a giant blob of flesh glued to a mobility scooter, the truth is much more sinister.
Her real name is Amelia Floyd and when she’s not terrorising teenagers, she’s scraping the remains of dead animals from the street for her supper. When she shows up at their Grandad’s funeral, Lawrence and Molly are both confused and horrified. Little do they know it’s the beginning of a mysterious adventure that will change their lives forever.
This dazzling debut novel weaves traditional fairytale macabre into a modern real life setting. A hilarious and often heartwarming tale of four teenagers coping with dark family secrets, strange mechanical devices and spine tingling encounters with the Flabberwocky!
