What silently waits in the shadows at night? What's under your bed, keeping just out of sight? Listen, if you dare…

Narrated by Samantha Bond (a.k.a Miss Moneypenny from James Bond) and Tom Fletcher himself, The Creakers is the tale of Lucy Dungston, a girl who wakes one morning to discover all the grown-ups have disappeared - as if into thin air! 

The Creakers

Illustrations by Shane Devries

Chaos descends as the children in Lucy's town run riot. It's mayhem. It's madness. To most kids, it's amazing! But Lucy wants to find out the truth. Lucy lost her dad not long ago, and she's determined not to lose her mum too. She's going to get her back - and nothing is going to stop her... except maybe the Creakers.

  • The Creakers

  • Lucy Dungston has woken up to find all the grown-ups in her town have disappeared.

    Lucy's friends are thrilled there are no more grown-ups. They're running wild! They're building roads of trampolines, and eating cereal for every meal.

    But Lucy wants her mum back, and nothing is going to stop her.

    Even if it means having to venture into the strange, upside-down world of the mysterious monsters under her bed...

    And the upside-down world isn't the most hygienic of places . . .

    Tom Fletcher's bestselling story is packed with amazing illustrations by the disgustingly talented Shane Devries. It's the perfect spooky (and slightly gross) tale for Halloween!
