Absurdly enjoyable dark adventure about a boy’s mission to stop his evil sisters terrorising the town. 

Product Description

Indigo McCloud’s sister Peaches is every adult’s favourite child: pretty, golden-haired, polite and charming. But the children of Blunt know better: Peaches and her sisters are a gang of bullies who will stop at nothing to get her own way.

This is the story of Indigo’s battle to stop Peaches. Leaping across the rooftops of Blunt, talking to his best friend, computer genius Polly, though a walkie talkie, Indigo tries to keep one step ahead of his sisters. But he has to tangle with deadly spiders, curry farts, bungling policemen, various kidnappings, a submarine mishap with a villainous wigmaker …

When he discovers a hidden basement under Peaches’s room where she and her sisters plot their schemes, he knows he is up against a truly evil genius.

    As an adult reader I really enjoyed this hilariously funny story. John Hearne’s use of entertainingly descriptive language, clever humour and captivating characters brings you on an adventure into the strange town of Blunt where young Indigo McCloud tries to protect Blunt’s children from his dangerous sisters. Hearne has a fantastic ability to engage the reader through consistently surprising you with clever plots, humorous scenes and interesting back stories that help you to really invest in the characters.
    Highly recommend to all ages!
    My 10 year old daughter loved it and says “This is a weird, witty and wonderful story with interesting characters and rib-tickling storylines”.
