All things considered, things aren't going too well for Boy in Wildpool. Not only are the police looking for him, but the worrying Arfur Loaf is on the warpath too. He can look after himself, can Boy, but going to Wiggott's Wonderful Waxworld to lie low for a while might be the worst decision he's ever made. No–getting on the Terror Train: that's the worst decision he's ever made. Now Burke and Hare are after him as well! All Boy has to do is get back to his own time, escape the Terror Train and rescue the girl... all before it's too late. That's enough for any boy in one day.
The first in a spellbinding new fiction series from Horrible Histories author, Terry Deary.
