Measle Books by Ian Ogilvy

Measle and the Wrathmonk

Measle Stubbs is really, really unlucky! He's thin and weedy, he cuts his own hair with a pair of rusty kitchen scissors, he hasn't had a bath in years - and he has to live with his horrible - and horribly scary - old guardian, the creepily beastly Basil Tramplebone - who just happens to be a Wrathmonk.

 

Wrathmonks are very very bad news indeed. Why? Well, for a start, they're all raving MAD!

 

Just when Measle thinks things can't get any worse, he's zapped by a stinky spell from Basil's smelly breath and shrunk down to a centimetre in height - and dropped right into the middle of Basil's enormous train set.

 

And boy, is it enormous! There are towns and forests and lakes and plastic people and - well, just about everything you can think of. There's also something huge and terrifying lurking up in the rafters, not to mention a giant cockroach the size of a bus - and absolutely, positively, no way that Measle can get back to his proper size and escape ... no way WHATSOEVER!

 

Or is there?

 

Hmmm ...
