9780007411559: Casper Candlewacks in Death by Pigeon! (Casper Candlewacks, Book 1)

Casper Candlewacks is the only boy with any sense in a village full of idiots… a hilarious debut novel from the funniest new voice in young fiction.
But don’t just take our word for it! Jeremy Strong has hailed it “a funny and engaging debut”.

Most villages have an idiot but Casper's village is full of them. So being bright makes poor Casper something of an outsider. When famous magician the Great Tiramisu curses the village, Casper's father is blamed and sentenced to death by pigeon. It's up to Casper and his best friend to find the magician, reverse the curse and save the day.

A riotous tale that proves all you really need in life is a buggy that runs on washing-up liquid and a couple of boys to crash it.

Review:

“A funny and engaging debut” Jeremy Strong

"Perfect for readers who like a laugh." Sunday Express

"One of children's fiction's most promising new writers…" Aldershot News and Mail

About the Author:

Ivan was born in Edinburgh in 1989, in a bike shop, or so he thought for a good chunk of his childhood. As a Philosophy undergraduate at Bristol University he spent his spare time scribbling on the backs of bus tickets, crisp packets, or whatever else he could get his hands on. Thankfully these scribbles ended up becoming a book. He now lives in London and is a full time writer.
