Description of this Book

Chester Parsons has discovered he can mind jump! He just needs to really concentrate and suddenly he is inside the body of another person, but more fun than this, another animal... And it's just what his aspiring YouTuber sister needs to boost her viewing numbers. Suddenly Chester is an social media sensation. So it's with the whole world watching that Chester does his best mind jump yet... into the body of Tito the Gorilla. Only, when it comes to jumping back into his own body, he can't. It's been stolen! Who could want it, and why? Perhaps an ancient order of mind jumpers, the nefarious Star Swimmers , would be a good place to start looking... Hilarious, fast-paced and propelled forward by the high stakes of what to do when your body is missing and your mind is dissolving into a gorilla's, an unmissable standalone from the author of THE IMAGINATION BOX.
