Imagine a world where children get to make the rules…

After zany scientist Max Splatter invents a breakfast cereal designed to boost children’s brainpower, strange things start happening.

Follow three ordinary children, Patch Patterson, Fred Crosby and Romany Wishbone, as they discover astonishing new powers and begin getting their own back on the grown-ups who’ve been making their lives a misery.

When the adults begin fighting back, the kids organise a rebellion to do battle with the prime minister, George Bourne-Tarool, and the entire British army…


Cliff Martin was born in West London, close to where he lives now. He recently retired following a thirty-seven-year career in journalism, largely spent as a sub-editor on national newspapers, most recently at The Times. Cliff is married with three children, and his interests include history, Brentford FC, rambling in the West Country, pottery, cooking and bread-making.

This was a really cool book. I enjoyed all the characters especially Max splatter and the illustrations were unique and vibrant.

A concept that I'm sure isn't too far fetched! A great read for my little cousin whom enjoyed this throughout the summer break. Would recommend this as a light read for the younger audience.
