An edge-of-your seat adventure for readers aged 8+

Scooby Doo meets Escape Room in this brilliant new book packed with puzzles, spooks and mystery!

Emma Read's Milton the Mighty was a huge hit with our subscribers and we're super excited by her latest book. She writes with such humour and imagination. This is the first in a new series that we think is going to be a hit.


Amity has run off into Badwell Woods.

Her brother Claude goes after her, only to discover his little sister’s scarf dangling near a house in the trees.

Has she gone inside?

He enters, not expecting a three storey-building with NO stairs. And a party laid out when there’s nobody else around.

Only when the front door locks behind him does he realize it’s a housetrap.

And they’ve been caught . . .

Emma Read was once a very sensible biologist. Now she uses her transferable talents such as attention to detail, patience and fine motor skills, to extract Lego from under the sofa. And of course to write children's books.
