Not as good as Terry Pratchett, but Hutchison might get close to it.
Really liked the humour of the boos as Drake finds 3 Riders of the Apocalypse from his backyard and becomes latest "Death" - not so easy task when you're still at school ;)

"You sitting down then?" asked human blancmange. He was munching on another chocolate bar, not even bothering to remove the wrapper first.
Drake's gaze shifted across each of the men in turn. The only sound in the shed was slow, rhytmic rattling of the container in the bearded man's hand.
"Um...um..." Drake stammered. "Sit...sit down?"
"Well, you might as well!" chirped the third man, removing his glasses and slipping them back in his pocket. "I mean, let's face it, you are going to be stuck here for ever, after all!"
The door gave a loud thud as it swung closed. The three occupants of the shed listened to the boy's screams as he raced from the clearing and back towards the house.
"Oh dear," said the third man. "Was it something I said, d'you think?"
