Adventure Stories Humorous Stories

Welcome to Bitterly Bay. Spangles McNasty has decided to spend his summer doing what he loves the most: shouting at babies, pulling faces at old ladies, eating cold chips from bins and best of all, collecting other people's spangly things!
Having convinced themselves that goldfish are made of gold and that they grow to the size of whales, Spangles and his friend Sausage-face Pete decide to find the great Fish of Gold. They'll be rich forever!
Only young Freddie Taylor can stop Spangles' dastardly plan, in a tale full of time-travelling jet skis, madcap chases and haunted custard. It is a tale so odd, your mind-cogs will jam with happiness for ever after!

The Bookseller

With its zany plot, an abundance of the fanciful imagery and word play that young readers love, this is unadulterated fun!


Both ludicrous and funny, join Freddie on the greediest, goldest and fishiest escapade of the summer.


Packed in silliness, sleuthiness and non-stop action… Heavily spangled throughout with the brilliant inky scribbly illustrations of Chris Mould, this is the start of a series featuring the best rotter I’ve met in ages. Move over Twits! Step aside Mr. Gum! Spangles is here and he’s one in a ‘bullion’!


A totally silly adventure

The Bookbag

A perfectly marvellous summer romp which will have you laughing out loud at the ludicrous villains and outrageously bonkers storyline.
