  • "I scribbled angrily in my notebook, ripped the page out and held it in from of his face. 'You killed my mother,' it said, 'and I've got the sausages to prove it.' It starts off as a normal week for Rowena. A car full of stewed apples. A police cell. A desperate struggle to keep Dad off national TV. Then her world turns upside down. And suddenly Ro is battling French policemen, high explosives and very unusual sausages to discover painful and joyous secrets that change her life for ever. In this hilarious heart-stopping climax to the adventures of Rowena Batts, heroine of Blabber Mouth and Sticky Beak, Morris Gleitzman again shows himself to be a master storyteller as he takes us from tears to laughter in the same breath." --Publisher's site
