Liam's grandad is devastated when Mrs Porteous succeeds in her mission to close Nursery Rhyme Land, a museum full of stuffed animals displayed in nursery rhyme scenes. Not only that, but Liam has to contend with a pair of haunted trousers, which when combined with General Custer's false teeth, turn the wearer into Rabbit, a sad orphan cat-catcher - and both Grandad and Mrs Porteous fall victim! Stir in a fainting goat, stand back as the museum animals come to life and attack Grandad, and watch the fast and furious fun develop. Surprisingly, all ends happily as Grandad and Mrs Porteous open the Fainting Goat Farm.

If you're daring enough to leap into a world of fainting goats, cat skin trousers, magical anniversaries, and talking false teeth, then you're ready for NIGHT OF THE HAUNTED TROUSERS. Does Granddad want to pass on his amusement park sensation to his grandson, and does Liam want to inherit it? Nigel Lambert is fearless as he leads listeners from one outrageous escapade to the next. He sets the pace and timing to pack one twenty-four-hour period with fast-paced absurdity. Through Liam's eyes and voice, the story snowballs to its fantastic conclusion.
