Zeb and the Great Ruckus

(3 reviews)

“This is a story made from pieces of all the dreams that you had when you were asleep, but then forgot when you woke up.”

Hello! You are reading this in order to determine whether or not this book will be of interest to you! Well, congratulations, you obviously have fabulous taste!

Zeb and the Great Ruckus is a story about magic, music, fireworks, bewilderbeasts, clockwork birds and weaponised toffee. It has some funny bits, some scary bits, some sad bits, and a rather large bit about a cave-dwelling Ruttersnarl which we would tell you about but we don’t want to give away the ending. If you like the sounds of any or all of the above, then this is the book for you! If you would rather read a complete history of European haberdashery, please consult your local book emporium.

Available in print and ebook formats from Amazon or your favourite bookstore or online retailer.

  1. Vidya Tiru

    “Metaphors and similes are scattered all over this book – in every page, in fact – like pearls in a beautiful ocean, like the stars in the perfect sky! They are musical, magical!” – Lady In Read

  2. Jessica Bell

    Tim Burton and Baz Luhrmann should team up and make this into a film. I haven’t read anything so FUN and NUTS in ages. I’m naming Joshua Donnellan, Roald Dahl’s alter-ego; the guy that accidentally got into the medicine cabinet. – Jessica Bell, author of The String Bridge

  3. Books for Kids

    Crazy. Nutty. Completely wacky. Fantastically unique! I absolutely loved this story. Books like this are the reason I read. – Books 4 Kids
