Eric Thrashmettle is a retired rock'n'roll legend - or dinosaur, depending on your perspective. His kids - Lulubelle Flower Fairy Thrashmettle (Lou) and Living Buddha Thrashmettle (Buddy) - are mortally embarrassed by his every move. But Eric is broke, his wife Wave is spending a fortune at a distant luxury yoga retreat, his manager Per has disappeared - and the kids want their credit cards back. Lou and Buddy must abandon all pride and self-respect and get their terminally embarrassing dad back on the road so he can sing his epic - and lucrative - hit Pig Train once again.

Sam Llewellyn worked as an editor and fine art dealer until he decided that life was too short. Since then, he has been a journalist, yachtsman and novelist and has written many successful thrillers for adults, plus two hilarious children's novels, LITTLE DARLINGS and BAD, BAD DARLINGS. He lives with his wife, children's author Karen Wallace, in Herefordshire.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-8–Infamous metal band Death Eric hasn't played a gig since their lead singer, Eric Thrashmettle, convinced himself that he was cursed by a raven at the Chickenstock music festival. Oblivious to everything going on around him, he now lives a quiet life shut away in his estate with a team of servants and his two children, Lulubelle Flower Fairy, who goes by Lou, and Living Buddha, aka Buddy. Things take a bad turn when Eric's manager mysteriously disappears along with the Thrashmettle fortune. Left without working credit cards, Lou and Buddy take it upon themselves to try to get the band back together to lay some tracks, play some shows, and make some money. Ridiculous scenarios, silly names, and bad puns ensue as the two children work behind the scenes to get the band back on track. Fans of the reality show The Osbournes will be amused by the clueless, Ozzyesque way that Eric Thrashmettle interacts with his children and his surroundings. The story drags a bit in the middle, with each new obstacle facing the children more preposterous than the last. However, reluctant readers may be entertained by the absurd plot that, like many aging rockers, doesn't know when to quit.–Michelle Roberts, Merrick Library, NY
