The tenth book in the fantastically chilling series for young and reluctant readers – The Nightmare Club
See, the thing is, new babies are empty-headed. Total smushface, nothing in their brains, and they can’t do anything.
So how come Barry’s baby sister can draw pyramids?
The baby is draining all the knowledge out of Barry’s brain – wom, wom, WOM – and his mum’s and dad’s too. If Barry can’t find a way to stop her, she is going to suck out all the stuff in everyone’s head and all their brains are going to turn to mush.
