A wickedly funny series that will appeal to all young scientists, created by Chris Mould, illustrator of A Boy Called Christmas and Tim Healey. If you like Horrid Henry, you’ll love Mortimer Keene.

Mortimer Keene is full to bursting with madcap plans, and if it’s trouble you’re after, look no further! With laugh out loud illustrations, rollicking rhymes, and short chapters perfect for new readers, this second book in the series sees Mortimer Keene and his phantom machine up to no good again!

When the school is overrun with ghosts and ghouls from the past, it’s up to Mortimer Keene to blast them back in time and save the school.

Reviews

Humorous rhyming text is well matched with lively, amusing illustrations.
Peters Gazette
It is only now that one of my sons has reached the right reading stage that I realise the sheer genius of Tim Healey and Chris Mould's Mortimer Keene series. I have never seen him devour a book with so many tricky words so fast as he did... zany comic writing and elegantly ghastly pictures that are the joy.
The Glasgow Herald
Another visual feast full of fun... top notch ghost-busting!
WRD Magazine
Great for newly confident readers.
The Guardian
A motivating and entertaining read for emerging readers in junior school... complemented by a set of fantastic black and white drawings.
