Abandinus, a little-known Celtic deity, finds a new purpose in his eternal life - sorting out thirteen-year-old Kevin's human one! An exciting wish-fulfillment read from the winner of The Blue Peter Book of the Year Award, Ali Sparkes.
It's just a regular trip for Kevin, and he comes back with just the regular sorts of things. Some local fudge, a scented candle for his mum . . . and his own personal god. It's Abandinus, a little-known Celtic deity, who has suddenly found a new purpose in his eternal life - sorting out Kevin's. With a god on your side, everything's going to get a lot easier, isn't it? After all, a god can get stuff done. The trouble is, it's not always the kind of stuff Kevin has in mind! Funny and exciting, this is an unputdownable adventure from the author of Frozen in Time - winner of the Blue Peter Book of the Year Award!

About Ali Sparkes
Ali Sparkes grew up in Southampton and despite some exciting months in London and even more exciting months in Lowestoft (where she really experienced life on the edge as a Pontin's Bluecoat), still lives in Southampton today, with her husband and two teenage sons. She has worked as a singer, journalist, broadcaster, magazine editor, and the spangle-clad assistant to a juggling unicyclist (frighteningly, there is photographic proof). Ali currently has 29 children's fiction titles published by Oxford University Press including her Shapeshifter series, her Blue Peter Award-winning novel Frozen in Time, and her heart-stopping new adventure series about a group of teenagers with special powers - Unleashed.
