All things considered, things aren't going too well for Boy in
Wildpool. Not only are the police looking for him, but the worrying
Arfur Loaf is on the warpath too. He can look after himself, can Boy,
but going to Wiggott's Wonderful Waxworld to lie low for a while might
be the worst decision he's ever made. No–getting on the Terror Train:
that's the worst decision he's ever made. Now Burke and Hare are after
him as well! All Boy has to do is get back to his own time, escape the
Terror Train and rescue the girl... all before it's too late. That's
enough for any boy in one day.
The first in a spellbinding new fiction series from Horrible Histories author, Terry Deary.
