The Box of Demons

3.91 based on 29 ratings & 7 reviews on Goodreads.com

Ben Robson can't remember a time before he had the box, with its three mischief-making demon occupants: smelly, cantankerous Orf, manically destructive Kartofel and fat, slobbering greedy-guts Djinn. When Ben was a kid it was fun, and he enjoyed their company. Now he's twelve they're nothing but trouble.

Then one day Ben has an angelic visitor who tells him that he can be rid of the box forever if he sends it back to hell. There's only one catch - the box has other plans . . .

The Box of Demons by Daniel Whelan was the winner of the 2012 Write Now! Prize. It is now available in paperback with a gorgeous illustrated cover by Chris Riddell.

Reminiscent of Terry Pratchett's oeuvre, The Box of Demons is a humour, adventurous read - and the fact that the cover illustration was drawn by Chris Riddell is an added bonus.

About Daniel Whelan

Daniel Whelan was born in Cheshire, but grew up in North Wales. He left for London in 2000 to study for a degree in acting. His adaptation of Richard Adams's Watership Down premiered at The Riverside Studios and was acclaimed by Mr Adams as one of the best he'd read. His next play, A Harlot's Progress, inspired by the etchings of Hogarth, was well received by TimeOut. Alas, Mr Hogarth was too dead to give his opinion.

The Box of Demons, Daniel's debut novel, was winner of the Write Now! Prize.
