TIME-TRAVELLING SQUIRRELS? WHAT CAN POSSIBLY GO WRONG?!?
Genius inventor Fandango has given the Pop-O-Matic 3000 a time-travelling tweak and birthday girl Gertrude is about to get the gift of her dreams.
Her very own dinosaur.
That’s the plan, but with the Popcorn-Eating Squirrels about, chaos is soon unleashed! Before you can say ‘Triceratops’, the squirrels are running amok 65 million years ago amongst the deadliest predators ever to roam the earth.
There’s a ravenous pack of Velociraptors to be dodged. A baby to rescue. A family to save. An asteroid to be deflected from its deadly collision course.
It’s all in a hungry day’s work for the Popcorn-Eating Squirrels.
And Salty gets his chance to be the (slightly reluctant) hero of the hour.
So get your teeth into this bone-crunching adventure and join the squirrels on their craziest journey yet!
Matt Dickinson is an award-winning writer and filmmaker with a passion for climbing and adventure. During his filmmaking career he has worked as a director/cameraman for National Geographic television, the Discovery Channel, the BBC and Channel 4. His film projects have taken him to Antarctica, Africa and the Himalaya, often in the company of the world's leading climbers and expeditioners. His most notable film success was Summit Fever in which Matt reached the summit of Everest via the treacherous north face. His book The Death Zone tells the true story of that ascent and has become a bestseller in many different countries. Matt is currently patron of reading at Eltham College and continues to climb and explore. In January 2013 he summited Mount Aconcagua, which, at 6,965 metres, is the highest peak in the world outside the Himalaya. In 2016, and again in 2017, he was back on Everest as writer in residence with Jagged Globe's South Col Expedition. Currently, he is planning an ascent of Denali in Alaska, one of the 'seven summits'. Recently Matt has started writing fiction for teenage readers. His debut thriller series Mortal Chaos was well received by critics and readers alike. Matt followed this up with the Everest Files, a dramatic and popular trilogy set on the world's highest mountain, and the teen thriller Lie Kill Walk Away. Popcorn-Eating Squirrels Go Nuts on Everest is the follow-up to Popcorn-Eating Squirrels of the World Unite! When he's not writing, Matt tours the globe, speaking at schools and colleges and inspiring a new generation of adventurers.
