Written by David Caddy


‘I just heard Mum and Dad talking,’ James said. ‘I know what’s wrong with them. They said something about rabies.’

Mum and Dad have been acting strangely for more than a week — Mum’s eating the oddest things and Dad is losing the plot. Now the truth is out, and James and Jo realise they have to act fast to save the rest of the family from a terrible fate. Dead mice, foaming snails, bat traps and cockroach puffing are just the start in this wacky race against the clock.
