Everyone has a Lifetime Deed Counter (LDC). It works like this:

You offer to help with the housework: Lifetime Good Deeds +1

You steal your little brother's sweets: Lifetime Bad Deeds +1

Looks straightforward, huh? But what if your every thought was disputed by opposing forces of good and evil - by an angel wearing ray bans (called Windleberry) and a demon in the form of a wa

4 Out of 5
You know how you can read a book and even though you weren't really expecting to, you loved every second? When it's one of those books that has that magic, that spark, that just reminds you so much of when you were young and innocent and everything was absolute magic? Muddle and Win was that book for me. I'm not going to say it’ll be that way for everyone or that it's a perfect, flawless read, but it just had a spark I've not seen in kids books for ages. It's funny, witty, quirky, exc

Muddlespot has been sent on a mission of great importance: to turn Sally Jones to the dark side. For an overgrown wart that cleans up entrails, his promotion to special agent was a pretty big deal, but despite being taken out of his comfort zone he seemed to muddle his way through somehow. In fact Muddlespot was the most unsuspecting protagonist there is. At least I think he’s the protagonist. Coming from Pandemonium, aka hell, he should be the antagonist. But for someone who lives in Pandemoniu ...more

Muddle and Win is a story about the battle between good and bad. This time the battle is for one Sally Jones.

Sally Jones has a Lifetime Deed Counter (LDC) reading of 3,971,567 Lifetime Good Deeds and NIL Lifetime Bad Deeds. Something must be done about it. In comes Muddlespot…

Muddlespot, former wart (yes, you read that correctly, wart!) and cleaner, is a newly promoted special agent from Pandemonium who has been sent on a mission to turn Sally Jones bad or at the very least make her LDC more bal

REVIEW BY SHELLY

“The angel towered over him. In its rock-steady hands it gripped a great bassoon, with the mouth pointed right between Muddlespot's eyes. 'Say your prayers, creep' said the angel, 'Oh I forgot – you people don't, do you?'

What if your every thought was disputed by opposing forces of good and evil – by an angel wearing Ray-bans and a demon called Muddlespot? Sally Jones is Good. And Muddlespot, newly promoted to special agent, is on a mission to make her Bad. If he doesn't, it will

The best word I could possibly use to describe Muddle & Win is bonkers, but in a good way! I was hurled into this fabulously imagined world that was brilliantly fun, silly, witty and wonderfully written and put together. I immediately fell in love with brave little Muddlespot, who came to be rather strangely out of a hairy, juicy wart (yes, bonkers, I told you)! The storyline is engaging and is perfectly paced, it is one of them one sitting books that I love so much. I really haven't came ac ...more

Muddle and Win:

Muddle is Muddlespot, an ex-wart, ex-cleaner sent up from the depths of Pandemonium to try and do what so many others have failed to do before: infiltrate Sally Jones mind and make her do a bad deed for the first time in her life. Win is Windleberry, the angel sent down from heaven to try and keep Sally Jones on the straight and narrow. But who will win the Battle of Sally Jones? Well telling you would spoil the ending.

This book is full of ideas. The obvious one is the lifetime go
