Description

*A hilarious, dark adventure for kids and adults!*

‘A book aimed at kids that captures youthful humour perfectly. By which we mean it’s energetic, weird, and delightfully disgusting – 10/10’ Starbust Magazine

‘The bloodthirsty, heartfelt romp your brutal inner child craves’ BlizzardComedy

In a town surrounded by deadly mist, and filled with oddities, two young siblings become orphans.

And that’s the best thing that’s happened to them all day.

Howard Howard was a Wrecker (a brute and bully by profession) who was brutal and bullish to his children – Aubrey and Aubrey’s Sister. Howard Howard deserved to be turned into mince, and thanks to a mysterious duo called The Grinders, that’s exactly what happened to Howard Howard.

Hunted by the police and their father’s gang of Wreckers, the siblings find some new friends to help keep them safe: a talented burglar named Charlie (who has no bones, but a great moustache) and a sword-wielding assassin named Calo (who has a sword, duh.)

In a town already revelling in its own chaos and with new dangers around every corner, Aubrey’s Sister and Aubrey stumble into a world of secrets, myths and monsters.
