'Leo Lennox has an epic problem. It’s his thirteenth birthday and he has just grown a tail. If it’s not disastrous enough that the scaly growth has torn through the back of his pants in the school library, it turns out to be the first stage in the rapid and total implosion of his life.

'Now, as he discovers an unthinkable family secret, Leo must team up with his infuriating older sister to escape snake-skinned henchmen, ancient shape-shifters and a whispering villain determined to feed him to a pack of genetically engineered killer pigs. All while trying to get his secret crush to notice him.'

'This time, it's global! Can Leo Lennox save the world's Turners from destruction? The riotous and fast-paced conclusion to the bestselling TURNERS trilogy

'Leo Lennox is in big trouble.

'Actually, every Turner on the planet is in big trouble: a deranged scientist is threatening to expose their secret world and destroy them all.

'With help from a pair of guerrilla gorillas (and their incredible inventions), his nerdy friend Ernie, and his annoying-but-sort-of-all-right older sister Abbie, Leo must criss-cross the world to stop the mad doctor before he serves up the full buffet of doom to Turners everywhere.

'If he can't, the planet won't be just a little bit doomed - it'll be fully doomed!'
