Summary

Lunch just got dangerous. Josh and Danny don't know it yet but something sinister is waiting in one of their lunchboxes. One taste and the twins will get ears in their kneecaps and a strange ability to chuck up brown goo - just like a grasshopper. But Petty Potts - the mad scientist from next door-wouldn't let that happen - would she?

SWITCH:Grasshopper Glitch Summary

SWITCH:Grasshopper Glitch by Ali Sparkes

Josh and Danny let Petty Potts-their barmy next-door neighbour and scientist extraordinaire-give them a lift to school, but after a mix up with their drink and some S.W.I.T.C.H spray the twins suddenly have green feelers, ears in their abdomens and a strange ability to chuck up brown goo. The boys must SWITCH back before anyone notices they're not in class. But school is the least of their worries-they're just a whisker away from trouble-there's a grasshopper muncher on the loose . . . Petty Potts's diary entry: One day, I am going to find Victor Crouch-confront him-and make him confess that he stole my work and burnt out my memory. But in the meantime, as far as Josh and Danny are concerned, I will keep my promise and will never make them try any more spray or potion. Or trick them. Or bribe them. Or anything like that. Probably.

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.)
