Some dark and mysterious forces remain "unseen" - among them are the eerie mirrors Richard encounters at the fairground, the dangerously prophetic Seeshells that tempt Alan to look into the future, and the Ghost Box that swallows everything that comes into its path.

Paul Jennings is particularly concerned to make reading fun and interesting for children, instead of a chore. He works as a lecturer in Teacher and Adult Education. Paul has won many Australian awards - in 1992 he won an award in every children's choice list in the country. He lives in Australia.From AudioFile:
These stories perfectly capture the lives and spirits of adolescent boys. From corny to poignant to terrifying, Stig Wemyss conveys the tone of each story. The production's sound effects add to Wemyss's ability to capture every emotion a kid could ever have, especially when embarrassing things happen. The best story here involves a kid who gets a toilet seat stuck on his head. (The lid keeps closing on him quite unceremoniously.) Wemyss is perfect in his portrayals of the kid insulting everyone, including old ladies and bikers with beer bellies. Surprisingly, a parrot forces him to mend his ways. Wemyss makes listeners believe Jennings's stories are possible, to the delight of listeners young and old. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
