Alex Sparrow and the Really Big Stink

Alex Sparrow is a super-agent in training. He is also a human lie-detector. Working with Jess – who can communicate with animals – they must find out why their friends – and enemies – are all changing into polite and well behaved pupils. And exactly who is behind it all. It’s a funny, middle grade novel  packed full of humour and superhero references. Oh, and a rather clever goldfish called Bob. In a world where kid’s flaws and peculiarities are being erased from existence, Alex and Jess must rely on what makes them different to save the day.

The brilliant cover for Alex Sparrow and the Really Big Stink was designed by Alex Dimond. You can find him on Twitter: @alexplosion


The cover and internal illustrations were drawn by Heath McKenzie. If you’d like to see more of his work, take a look at
