What would you do if the whole world stopped except you? And what would you do if your skin suddenly turned a bright, broccoli shade of green? Just two conundrums facing the heroes of TV and radio presenter Danny Wallace's Hamish and the Worldstoppers and screenwriter and author Frank Cottrell Boyce's The Astounding Broccoli Boy. A not-to-be-missed event!

Frank Cottrell-Boyce is a successful British screenwriter whose film credits include Welcome to Sarajevo, Hilary and Jackie and 24 Hour Party People. Millions, his debut chidlren's novel, won the 2004 Carnegie Medal and was shortlisted for the Guardian Children's Fiction Award. His second novel, Framed, was shortlisted for the 2005 Whitbread Children's Fiction Award and has also been shortlisted for the 2005 Carnegie Medal. His third novel, Cosmic, was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize and the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. Now Frank has jumped into the driving seat, writing a sensational sequel to the much-loved Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
