Hamish Ellerby lives in Starkley,

the fourth most-boring town in Britain,

where nothing exciting EVER happens.


Until now. Because Hamish has started to notice something unusual.


Every once in a while, the world just… stops. The birds in the air. The people outside.

The clock on the wall. Everything. Stops. Everything, that is, except for Hamish…

But WHY is the world pausing? WHERE are all the grown-ups vanishing to?

WHAT are those horribly hideous creatures that keep appearing?

And WHO are the mysterious PDF who think they have the answers??





Nobody knows it yet, but the people

of Earth are in big, big trouble.

Like – HUGE trouble. Oh, come on,

where’s your imagination?

Double what you’re thinking!





This may look like just a completely

and utterly ordinary book. But it’s not.

This book knows something

terrifying: that the people of Earth

face their gravest, grimmest threat yet!



Beware the babies… they cry…

they poo… they ATTACK!

Hamish and the PDF have been left in

charge of Starkley while his dad is off

hunting down the second most dangerous

villain in the universe –

Axel Scarmarsh!




The important task of saving the world

doesn’t stop just because it’s Christmas,

so get ready for THREE festive adventures

featuring Hamish Ellerby and his pals in the PDF!!





Things are afoot in Starkley … again!

Out in the ocean something’s on the move …

Something BIG …
