The Switch

By Anthony Horowitz

A dark and mysterious adventure from the number one bestselling author of the Alex Rider series.

A boy's casual wish leads him into a dark and mysterious world in this thrilling adventure from the bestselling author of the Alex Rider series. For Tad Spencer, only son of a fabulously wealthy businessman, every day is like Christmas. Until he makes the mistake of wishing he was someone else. The next morning he wakes up as Bob Snarby, trapped in a cruel and squalid funfair world inhabited by hopeless criminals, mysterious fortune tellers and – worst of all – the murderous Finn. But he's there for a reason, as Tad discovers when he begins to untangle a secret that will introduce him to the most unexpected enemy of all...

  • A wickedly funny story, featuring brand new interior illustrations by Tony Ross.
  • "A formidably well-written adventure story... Horowitz joins a bleak but brilliant new school of children's writing which is best described as fantastical realism." - Independent
  • "Every bit as exciting as anything by Dahl." - Independent
