The Turners

by Mick Elliott

Introducing the funniest Australian kids’ author in years, with a tale of snake-skinned baddies, giant, flesh-eating pigs, genetically modified hamsters, car chases, and a main character who discovers that he is a shape-shifter right in the middle of the school library.

Leo Lennox has an epic problem: it’s his thirteenth birthday and he has just grown a tail.

You’d think that growing a tail in the middle of the school library would be the worst thing that could happen to you, but Leo is about to discover that things can always get worse – and a whole lot weirder. Now, as he discovers an unthinkable family secret, Leo must team up with his infuriating older sister to escape snake-skinned henchmen, ancient shape-shifters and a whispering villain determined to feed him to a pack of genetically engineered killer pigs – all while trying to control his new shape-shifting powers.
