Night Of The Haunted Trousers



Liam's grandad is devastated when Mrs Porteous succeeds in her mission to close Nursery Rhyme Land, a museum full of stuffed animals displayed in nursery rhyme scenes. Not only that, but Liam has to contend with a pair of haunted trousers, which when combined with General Custer's false teeth, turn the wearer into Rabbit, a sad orphan cat-catcher - and both Grandad and Mrs Porteous fall victim! Stir in a fainting goat, stand back as the museum animals come to life and attack Grandad, and watch the fast and furious fun develop. Surprisingly, all ends happily as Grandad and Mrs Porteous open the Fainting Goat Farm.

About the author

Susan Gates

S.P. Gates was born in Grimsby, England. Her dad is a musician and her mum was a tailor. Before she became a full-time writer she lived and worked in Malawi, Africa, then taught in schools in Coventry and County Durham in England.

She has written more than 100 books for children. Many of which have won prizes, including twice overall winner of the Sheffield Children's Book Award, commended for the Carnegie Medal and Highly Commended for the Nasen Special Educational Needs Award. She's diversified a lot in children's writing (she likes a new challenge) and has written plays, poems, picture books, books for reluctant readers, novels for teenagers, comedy, thrillers, comedy/thrillers, historical novels - and even once a series of books about grammar for schools.

If she hadn't been a writer, she'd like to have been a professional guitarist like her father, who is still gigging at 88 years old!
