Come along and join Stix on the adventure of his life as he discovers what's really lurking beneath the cosy surroundings of Flat 3, Peewits Mansions. You will be wanting to read 'just one more chapter', as Stix navigates his way through the unknown, but will it be enough to save everything he had ever known? ...more

This is loads of fun! Stix is a great main character and he’s very brave! A mouse, a bat, a rat and all kinds of other pests involved in trickery and mischief! Brilliantly illustrated and loads of fun. I chuckled a fair few times! ‬I hope this is going to be a series!
