9780141310756: Return of the Mad Mangler

Leon's favourite tree, the old Crooked Oak, is said to be haunted by the Mad Mangler, a washerwoman who mangles her victims. The tree is kidnapped by SAS-type men and taken to the home of an old rock star, Goldilocks. Leon and Leather Girl search for the tree and witness the arrival of an ancient African baobab which is used as a village bus stop - a small boy and Levi, an elderly fruit bat, are still inside! The mystery of the tree kidnapping deepens as the Mad Mangler and other strange characters arrive. All ends happily as the Mad Mangler is introduced to the modern washing machine and Levi's bat poo solves Goldilocks baldness!

About the Author:

Susan Gates has written books for a very wide age range. RAIDER, a novel for older readers, was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Fiction Award, and her younger novel, BEWARE THE KILLER COAT, won the Sheffield Children's Book Award. Susan lives in County Durham.

From AudioFile:

There is adventure aplenty as Leon is on the trail of his precious hiding place--an ancient tree that has been stolen. He must confront an aging rock star, befriend a young African boy (who also has had his favorite tree taken), and potty train his little brother using a duck potty that quacks when it has been used successfully. But worst of all is the Mad Mangler, who haunts the tree and gives Leon his greatest scary challenge. The splendid Nigel Lambert enhances each of these characters, including the quacking potty. This worthwhile story concludes with a subtle message about loving and protecting nature. Truly a fun listen for all ages.
