Description of this Book

This title is uniquely written by 2000 children. All is quiet in the sleepy seaside town of Bywater-by-Sea, that is until a second meteorite falls to earth - landing in the middle of the Field Craft Troop's outdoor expedition camp. Tom is faced with a growing problem, Jacob can suddenly set things on fire, and it's only a matter of time until he realises that it's not spontaneous combustion that is causing so much havoc. What's more the excavation of the ancient castle has uncovered a mysterious glittering rock - and the dust is turning Bywater-by-Sea even more loopy than usual. Tom has some important questions to answer - Who is the suspicious Professor Lee and what is he doing with a wheelbarrow full of brussel sprouts? Why does Tilly's Cockatoo hate him? What will Grandma put in his sandwich next?

Author's Bio

Born in Chobham, by an airfield, and raised in Winchester on the banks of the river Itchen, Fleur Hitchcock was the youngest child of three. When she was eight, she wrote a story about an alien and a jelly. It was called THE ALIEN AND THE JELLY and filled four exercise books. She grew up a little, went away to school near Farnham, studied English in Wales, and, for the next twenty years, sold Applied Art in the city of Bath. When her younger child was seven, she embarked on the Writing for Young People MA at Bath Spa and graduated with a distinction. Now living outside Bath, between parenting and writing, Fleur Hitchcock works with her husband, a toy-maker, looks after other people's gardens and grows vegetables. Fleur's debut novel SHRUNK! was THE SUNDAY TIMES 'Book of the Week', and you can follow her at www.fleurhitchcock.wordpress.com or on Twitter: @fleurhitchcock
