From the author of THE PARENT AGENCY comes a thrilling, funny and
touching new adventure.
Fred and Ellie are twins. But not identical (because that’s impossible for a boy and a girl).
They do like all the same things, though. Especially video games. Which they are very good at. They aren’t that good, however, at much else – like, for example, football, or dealing with the school bullies.
Then, they meet the Mystery Man, who sends them a video game controller, which doesn’t look like any other controller they’ve ever seen. And it doesn’t control any of their usual games. When the twins find out what it does control, though, it seems like the answer to all their problems. And the key to all their wildest dreams. At least it seems like that…

Hilarious! As an adult the things I would do with a person controller, imagine if I was a kid the hilarious things and fun I would do with it!
Imagine having that power!
I had read the Parent Agency before (search here in the blog on that review) and was really brilliant, and David in this book didn’t let me down.
David if you are reading: the expectation is now very high…just saying…on your next book!
