Sally Tinker – creator of Brobot and the world’s foremost inventor under the age of twelve – is back. Sally has built a machine capable of enlarging any object, but when she tries resizing a slice of pizza she accidentally enlarges a dung beetle to scary proportions. As the hungry beetle rolls itself a dung ball large enough to crush an entire town, Sally races to shrink down the monster, before it’s too late.

‘4.5 out of 5 stars. Told in a highly graphic style through illustrated panels, this is a genuinely funny story that’s also packed full of knowledge. Beginner readers aged six to eight will not only laugh themselves stupid at the plethora of poo jokes, they’ll also learn a lot about insects and biology.’

‘I liked the book because it was very action packed and so funny … it was different and like nothing I’ve ever read before … I really enjoyed reading this book and I think other children would enjoy this book too.’
– Aaliyah, age 9, YARR-A
” [The S.Tinker Inc.] books are absolutely hilarious! Some of the funniest books I’ve read. Confident readers will love them but they are great to hook those kids who ‘don’t like reading’ … an invaluable addition to your graphic novel collection.”
