‘Fast paced and funny, this original adventure is my 9 year old daughter’s favourite new book!’ Lee Mack
Rita may be a baby, but she has the mind (and attitude) of a teenager. She may be new to walking but she’s as wise-crackingly clever as anyone in Key Stage 3. She knows she is not a normal toddler but when her parents disappear and a sinister clown and an ice-cream van seem to be hunting her down, even a soft-play centre might not be safe… Imagine The Fugitive – if Harrison Ford was two feet tall and wearing Pampers.
It will take all Rita’s cunning and resourcefulness, as well as a cat flap, a mobility scooter and a reluctant teenage sidekick, to defeat an evil conspiracy and a crazy genius villain.
INCLUDES A SIGNED* BOOKPLATE AND A FREE BADGE WHILE STOCKS LAST.

‘Hilarious and thrilling. Best comedy thriller for kids I’ve ever read.’ Ben Ward, Head writer of CBBC’s Danger Mouse and Horrible Histories
