The first in a fast-paced, funny series featuring The Stig: Top Gear’s legendary racing driver

Sam Wheeler may be the new boy in Bunsfold, but he’s got a feeling that all is not well either in the town or at Bunsfold High – and he’s not just talking about the maths teacher with the unfortunate flatulence. A local boy, Buster Mustang, has recently gone missing, and no one seems to care – they’re all too busy playing the highly addictive video game Xenon or getting the town ready for its very first TT race. Both are the brainchild of mysterious local billionaire PT Cruiser. Besides global domination, PT Cruiser wants nothing more than to destroy his nemesis The Stig once and for all – and his TT race is just what he needs to tempt him on to the big stage again …

Sam sets out with his new friends Minnie Cooper and Ford Harrison to uncover the truth behind all the strange goings-on in Bunsfold – but danger has a habit of showing up wherever they do, and soon all that stands between our heroes and disaster is … a taciturn man in a white suit.

0-60 pages in 4.5 hours Now honestly, I only bought this book because my son (just turned 15) loves fast cars. That’s not a shock, is it? But the first adventures of Sam Wheeler were. By the way, I always read a book (well, skim it) before handing it over to one of my kids. It used to be for ‘censorship’ reasons. Now it’s to keep me tuned in to what the kids are reading these days. And you know what – it was a real page turner. Funny. Funny-clever. But clever with purpose. A lot of knowledge relayed in gag-a-sentence…

This will really tickle your bunny fone Many will be drawn into the first chapter of The Stig’s adventures by the Top Gear association, which is inspired. But what keeps you reading are the relatable characters, the puntastic writing and the well observed satire – the data-sucking game Xenon is to the town of Bunsfold what smartphone addiction is to us all. This is the perfect read for a car or bike-mad kid (and for dog lovers this book goes the extra mile), while grownups will appreciate the humour too. Looking forward to the next…

Better than screen time, after all Trying to get my 3 kids off screens. Bought them a new book each. Ted (11) picked this up on sat am on pain of losing screen rights for the weekend. Didn’t put it down until lunchtime (p94) and finished it last night…so it must be good.
