Kids Series


Written by James Foley


Sally Tinker – creator of Brobot and the world’s foremost inventor under the age of twelve – is back. Sally has built a machine capable of enlarging any object, but when she tries resizing a slice of pizza she accidentally enlarges a dung beetle to scary proportions. As the hungry beetle rolls itself a dung ball large enough to crush an entire town, Sally races to fix her new machine but not before Sally’s baby brother Joe makes himself enormous and saves the day. Unfortunately Joe can’t be shrunk down immediately, and he desperately needs a nappy change.

'Told in a highly graphic style through illustrated panels, this is a genuinely funny story that’s also packed full of knowledge. Beginner readers aged six to eight will not only laugh themselves stupid at the plethora of poo jokes, they’ll also learn a lot about insects and biology. [4.5 out of 5 stars]' Junior Books+Publishing

'I liked the book because it was very action packed and so funny ... it was different and like nothing I’ve ever read before ... I really enjoyed reading this book and I think other children would enjoy this book too.' Aaliyah, age 9, YARR-A

'James' cartoon-like illustrations again capture the character's expressions and antics perfectly …' In the Good Books Blog

'Dungzilla, filled with humour, action and great illustrations is a must read book for younger readers and those who are just starting to read on their own.' Educate.Empower.
