Kipp Kindle, Tobias Treachery and Cymphany Chan live in Huggabie Falls, the weirdest town on Earth, so weirdness is pretty normal for them. But then unbelievably scary things start to happen. Suddenly everyone is being confronted by their worst fears (giant Brussells sprouts, terrifying teddy bears and huge spiders are just the beginning). But where did all those fearful things appear from? The evil Felonious Dark claims he’s reformed and is now good, but can the children trust him? Is he the one behind the unbelievably scary happenings? With all the humor and madcap adventure of the first Huggabie Falls book, this hilarious sequel will have young readers laughing out loud and asking for more.

Adam Cece won the 2017 Text Prize for Young Adult and Children’s Writing for the first book in the Huggabie Falls Series: The Extremely Weird Thing that Happened in Huggabie Falls. Adam lives in Adelaide.

‘Wonderfully weird and lots of fun.’ Andy Griffiths ‘Packed with fun and action, and Cece manages to balance on the edge of clever-silliness without tipping over into the ridiculous. He also manages to disguise a few deeper messages within his story which elevates it and makes the journey more satisfying…I highly recommend this book. It’s a laugh out loud, quirky, rollicking read that kids aged 8 – 12, boys and girls alike, will adore, especially those that love David Walliams and Andy Griffiths.— CBCA Reading Time; ‘Wonderfully weird and lots of fun.’—Andy Griffiths, author of the Treehouse series ‘The Extremely Weird Thing that Happened in Huggabie Falls won the 2017 Text Prize, and it’s easy to see why: it’s a funny read, full of hijinks and adventure. Most of the humour comes from the narrator’s many deviations and asides that are reminiscent of authors such as Lemony Snicket or Pseudonymous Bosch.’—Books+Publishing; ‘Cartoon-styleillustrations by Andrew Weldon and frequent interpolations from the excitable author all add to the appeal of an inventive, engagingly offbeat tale.’—Adelaide Advertiser; 'Cherish the nonsense as the pages fly through your fingers...A rollercoaster of fun, friendship and madcap adventure.’ Kids’ Book Review;
