Summary

Urgh! Josh and Danny are stuck in Princess Land-a toy shop full of pink stuff and worse, actual girls! Before too long, the twins find themselves with the head of a lizard and the body of a boy. Then to make things worse they are dragged into a dangerous game of combat, brother against brother . . .

S.W.I.T.C.H: Gecko Gladiator by Ali Sparkes

Petty Potts has vanished-at least it seems that way to Josh and Danny. In actual fact, she's just relocated her secret lab . . . to the VERY pink and VERY girly Princess Land! Reluctantly, the twins fight their way through hordes of excited girls dressed as fairies to the back of the shop, where a single door stands between them and Petty's new lab. SWITCHing into geckos, the boys have no problems getting under the door and up the walls. It's on the way out that things start to get really tricky . . . the SWITCH back hasn't gone well, and although Josh and Danny have normal legs, they're giant geckos from the waist up! How on earth will they escape from Princess Land now?!

S.W.I.T.C.H: Gecko Gladiator Reviews

Praise for SWITCH This book has helped my son, 5, move on from picture books at bed time to one with more words. An excellent choice for reluctant readers who will be thrilled at the idea of turning into a bug, mad inventors and lots of adventures. * Amazon Reviewer *
The book is great fun and involves the reader, who really feels as though they are part of the story. Along the way the reader learns a surprising amount about pond life. * www.parentsintouch.co.uk *
Praise for Ali Sparkes's Frozen in Time, winner of the Blue Peter Book of the Year Award 'I know now what they mean by a plot that is toe-curlingly good . . . brilliantly inventive and rollicking fantastical adventure' * Bookbag *
'Frozen in Time shows [Ali's] skill at fusing traditional children's storytelling with modern tales . . . Sparkes's sci-fi conspiracy thrills will keep 21st-century kids transfixed' * Books Quarterly *
'It was outstanding. It blew me away' * Jamie Fenlon, judge on the Blue Peter book award panel *

About Ali Sparkes

Ali was a local newspaper reporter and columnist before joining BBC local radio as a producer and presenter, and then chucked in the safe job to be dangerously freelance and write scripts and manuscripts. Her first venture was as a comedy columnist on the BBC Radio's top-rated Woman's Hour and Home Truths programmes. Ali lives in Southampton with her husband and sons and would never kill a creepy-crawly of any kind. They are more scared of her than she is of them. (Creepy-crawlies, not her husband and sons.) Ross Collins is winner of the Royal Mail Book Award. Ross was born in Glasgow, Scotland. He graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 1994 with 1st Degree in Illustration and spent two years in London before returning to Glasgow. He spends time illustrating picture books, watching cartoons, cat juggling and precariously swinging backwards on chairs. He has illustrated over thirty children's books so far and written four of them. The Sea Hole won 1st place in the 1994 Macmillan Prize and Supposing gained, among other prizes, a Blue Ribbon Award in the US.
