Sucked In

By John Parker

A weird and wacky spine-tingling tale.

When Zainey buys an eye, Dan thinks it’s a total rip-off – a useless joke. But this eye is no joke. This eye is after blood.

  • Short, fast-paced novels, laced with a good dose of humour and which make few demands on the reader.
  • Aiming at 9 – 14 year old age group – especially those who haven’t yet been “struck” by the reading bug. Similar readership to Penguin’s “Aussie Chomp” series, but with a more graphic and funky approach, to try to appeal to a wider audience.
  • Design includes funky chapter heads, wide leading, generous type and plenty of white space.
