What they say: Sam Wheeler may be the new boy in Bunsfold, but he’s got a feeling that all is not well either in the town or at Bunsfold High – and he’s not just talking about the maths teacher with the unfortunate flatulence. A local boy, Buster Mustang, has recently gone missing, and no one seems to care – they’re all too busy playing the highly addictive video game Xenon or getting the town ready for its very first TT race. Both are the brainchild of mysterious local billionaire PT Cruiser. Besides global domination, PT Cruiser wants nothing more than to destroy his nemesis The Stig once and for all – and his TT race is just what he needs to tempt him on to the big stage again …
Sam sets out with his new friends Minnie Cooper and Ford Harrison to uncover the truth behind all the strange goings-on in Bunsfold – but danger has a habit of showing up wherever they do, and soon all that stands between our heroes and disaster is … a taciturn man in a white suit.
What we say: 11 year old Harrison read this as his school reading book.
It was a popular choice with Harrison and his friends, particularly one friend who is an absolute car nut!
They can’t wait to read more books in the series…
Harrison liked the thriller style story line and said the story was quite exciting at the beginning. It tunes into modern child psyche, with part of the storyline based around a computer game. A great book for getting kids off those screens and into regular reading!
The Stig Plays A Dangerous Game is available from many good book stores and online from Amazon.
