'Eeek,' as Charlie decides to call him, takes up secret residence in Charlie's bedroom where he sleeps on the ceiling by night and pores over Charlie's football magazines and stickers by day.All is going surprisingly well until slimy sci-fi mad Sid Spiker, who lives out the back, spots Eeek through his telescope.

Karen Inglis lives in London, UK. She has two boys, George and Nick, who inspired her to write when they were younger. She also managed their local junior football team when they were ages 9 and 10, which partly inspired 'Eeek!' You can find out imore about Karen's other books for ages 3-11 on her author page.Review:
"Another great book from Karen Inglis. Like her previous novel 'The Secret Lake', Karen has kept 'Eeek!' to a manageable length. Too many books for this age group are so long that they tend to put off the less confident reader. It helps, as well, that it is illustrated which makes the text look both fun and manageable." -- Louse Jordan, The Writers' Advice Centre for Children's Books, Director, Wacky Bee Books
