Where the Bugaboo Lives

By Sean Taylor
Illustrated by Neal Layton

An interactive, which-way adventure book brimming with creepy creatures and terrifying monsters.

From the author of Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise, comes a wonderfully interactive, which-way adventure story which follows Floyd and his sister into the dark, shadowy valley behind their house … a valley full of all kinds of creepy, freaky, weaselly creatures and the scariest of them all – THE BUGABOO! In this hilarious, ghoulish story, you can choose Floyd and Ruby’s path (and which monster they meet next!) at the end of each page.

  • Incredibly interactive and perfect for reading over and over again, children will love being in control of how the plot unfolds, discovering new settings and characters with every new read.
  • Neal Layton's quirky, imaginative and hugely expressive illustration lends itself perfectly to the book's unique format.
