Freddy Tangles is an ordinary boy with more than his fair share of fears, and a whole lot of trouble heading his way in this humorous fiction for fans of Tom Gates and Big Nate.
What would you rather do, tell Sid he smells or tell Principal Brody he smells?
That’s easy. I would tell Mr Brody.
No one is scarier than the bully Sid Malone, and now he’s coming to get Freddy. Luckily, Freddy’s got a plan. Laser beam eyes. If he stares at a white wall for long enough and wants it bad enough, his eyes will start to shoot laser beams. On second thoughts, he might need a back-up plan!
Freddy’s friends are in danger too. But what can Freddy do when he’s even afraid of his little sister? (Well to be fair, she is totally evil!) He has to find a way to rescue them all from Sid. Only one thing is for sure – it’s going to hurt.
Jack Brand lives in Sydney's Inner West with his partner, Sarah, and two children. He is currently a high school teacher librarian. Before that he was an English teacher, before that a lawyer, and before that a police officer. There were a few less glamorous occupations as well.
Jack wrote his first novel while living on an island and caring for his two young children. The novel turned out to be terrible, but he can at least say that the kids turned out all right. Freddy Tangles: Legend or Loser is his second novel.
