The summer holidays have just begun and Jack is lying awake planning his summer and all of the games he will play with his friends. However just as Jack is beginning to drift off to sleep he is disturbed by an unfamiliar sound, a slow, scraping sound and when he looks out of his bedroom window he sees something on the street …..The Sleep Taker!
Jack, with his friends must now go on a three day adventure involving, brainwashed parents, fortress building at death defying heights, prison escapes and a flying dog to save the summer holidays for children everywhere, and all without any sleep! But, will they defeat The Sleep Taker before they are all so tired they give up? The Sleep Taker is the first book in the series, The Adventures of Horse Shoe Close. The second book in the series will be out early 2014.
