Charlie McGuffin has an incredible secret… He can change into animals. All sorts of animals: a flea, a pigeon, even a rhino! Trouble is, he can’t decide when – it only happens when he gets worried. And right now, Charlie has quite a lot to worry about:
* His brother (who is in hospital)
* His parents (who are panicking about it)
* And the school bully (who has Charlie in his sights)
And even though every kid wants a superhero power, Charlie isn’t keen on changing into a chicken in the middle of the school play. So with the help of his three best friends, Charlie needs to find a way of dealing with his crazy new power – and fast!
‘Full of heart and humour, wit and wisdom, and rivers of rhino poo’ Sophie Anderson, author of The House with Chicken Legs
