*Includes exclusive CD with 10 brilliant brand-new songs by Tom Fletcher*

Imagine waking up to discover that all the grown-ups in your town have disappeared.

Well, that’s what happens to Lucy Dungston.

Lucy’s friends can’t believe their luck. But while they’re running wild, Lucy’s making a plan. Because Lucy wants her mum back – and nothing’s going to stop her.

Even if it means journeying into the strange, upside-down world of the mysterious monsters under her bed…

Packed with amazing illustrations from the disgustingly talented Shane Devries, The Creakers: The Musical Edition includes 10 exclusive new songs on CD, all written and performed by Tom Fletcher, accompanied by a full orchestra. It features very special guests including Carrie Hope Fletcher, newcomers Chapter 13 – and the Creakers themselves…

Throughout the book you’ll find prompts telling you which track to listen to as you read the story, and all the lyrics, so you can sing along too!
