When Dr Sinister hatches his latest plan to take over the world, and creates evil custard that turns children into deadly blob monsters, what better place to try it out than an unsuspecting school?

Can Stan, Minnie, Miles and, of course, Pudding the Wonder Dog come up with an anti-custard-dote in time?
With fully integrated black and white illustrations throughout, this laugh-out-loud series is perfect for young readers.

You’d better take a look,’ said Minnie. ‘ME? Why me?’ protested Stan. ‘We’re not exactly best mates.’ ‘Well I can’t go in, it’s the boys’ toilets!’ said Minnie. Stan stood rubbing his ear, which was tingling violently. (Never a good sign.)

If we fail this inspection we
