Description

Named as a Best Book to Look Out for in 2020 by Waterstones!

The third hilarious adventure for Charlie McGuffin, the boy who changes into animals when he gets nervous.

Charlie McGuffin is an actual superhero. He's gained control over his wacky ability to change into animals - he's even able to use it to turn the tables on school bully Dylan.

But there are some things Charlie can't control, like the arguments his parents keep having (which are making him more worried than ever) or the mysterious animal disappearances spreading through town (which might be connected to Charlie himself).

Can Charlie unravel the mystery of the pet-nappings before his biggest secret is revealed to the world...?

About Sam Copeland

Sam Copeland is an author, which has come as something of a shock to him. He is from Manchester and now lives in London with two smelly cats, three smelly children and one relatively clean-smelling wife. Sam also works as a dinosaur de-boner, removing skeletons from dinosaurs and giving them to museums. Once the museums have finished with them, he then re-bones the dinosaurs, much to their relief. Charlie Turns Into a T-Rex is his second book, following his bestselling debut, Charlie Changes Into a Chicken. Despite legal threats, he refuses to stop writing. Sarah Horne learned to draw whilst trying to explain her reasoning for an elaborate haircut at the age of nine.
An illustrator for over fifteen years, she started her illustration career working for newspapers such as the Guardian and the Independent On Sunday.
Sarah has since illustrated many funny young fiction titles and loves to include hilarious details in her work.
She works traditionally with a dip pen and Indian ink, and finishes the work digitally.
When not at her desk, Sarah loves running, painting, photography, cooking, film, and a good stomp up the hill.
