Something strange is happening in Farrago Bay and Sheldon McGlone is going to get to the bottom of it. The local wildlife is behaving strangely and so are some of the grown-ups, particularly his teacher, the weird and elusive Miss Fleming. It doesn't help that Sheldon is being relentlessly pursued by bullies—including his older brother! Just when things couldn't get much worse, a new kid turns up in Sheldon's classroom. Theophilus Brain, aka "The Brain," has an excessive imagination and a lot of odd ideas about what is ailing Farrago Bay. With a missing human leg and a crocodile who likes to play fetch as clues, Sheldon and the Brain turn detective and uncover a web of evil that stretches across two continents. Author Martin Chatterton has crafted a wonderfully imaginative mystery that features memorable, well-drawn characters and an over-the-top storyline. The surprising and occasionally hilarious plot twists will engage and delight young readers.

A definite adventure for young adult genre readers everywhere. Surprising twists, unexpected turns....and animals-gone-wild. Have you ever wondered what a group of koalas might do if pushed too far?  Or what about the calm serenity of the ocean combined with a few whales with a grudge?  You never know what go awry next in this fascinating story of The Brain, his sidekick....and a barking alligator.  (Yup, you read that right!)  Definitely a fun and imaginative read for all ages.  Don't take my word for it...read it and you be the judge....happy reading!
