An action-packed story in which the weedy central character, Ruskin Splinter, becomes a hero. He outwits the monster Krindlekrax which has been terrorising Lizard Street and tames Elvis, the local bully. Characters in Philip Ridley’s stories usually have catchphrases, and these can become refrains to be joined in with when the books are read aloud.
