Matt is returning home from the cinema when a yellow-eyed monster bites his hand and his whole world - and body - changes. Helped by his best friend Lisa and teacher Mrs Ruskin, they have just two days to find a cure before the curse takes hold forever! Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers of 8+.

She has won the Book Sense Children's Literature Award twice and the Roswitha Prize. She was voted into Time magazine's list of 100 most influential people in 2005. Cornelia resides in Los Angeles.
