A laugh-out-loud, brilliantly wacky, highly illustrated children’s debut for readers of 8+ from an award-winning comedy writer – a perfect longer read for fans of Pamela Butchart and Grimwood, illustrated by Jeff Crowther.

Maggie McKay is NOT happy that her mum has decided to move from their flat in Leicester to a house in Knobbly Bottom (the most BORING village ever invented). Knobbly Bottom has got NO soft play centres, NO toy shops and NO horse that her mum had (sort of) promised her. There are just fields, church fetes, and a bunch of boring old sheep!

But Maggie soon discovers that Knobbly Bottom is also full of SECRETS. The sheep are growing FANGS, their eyes are turning RED, and they’re planning to take over the world…

When Mum thinks she’s just making up another silly story, it’s up to Maggie, her little sister Lily and their new friend Fred – with the help of a strange old lady called Nan Helsing and some stinky garlic bread – to save Knobbly Bottom from the ATTACK OF THE VAMPIRE SHEEP!

  • Genuinely laugh-out-loud jokes and puns on every page to delight kids and grown-ups alike, with an instantly relatable cast of family and friends
  • Hilarious black-and-white artwork and dynamic design throughout, ideal even for readers who lack confidence
  • A fiercely determined girl hero and a cast of brilliant monster-battling characters!
