This is the story of Jake Biggs and his dad, George. George spends all week knocking down buildings… and all weekend knocking down wrestlers. He’s the Demolition Man, and Jake couldn’t be prouder.
But when Jake hears about a pro-wrestling competition in the USA, and persuades his dad to apply, things don’t quite turn out quite the way he expected.

When his childhood dream of playing for Hull City was scuppered by too many Mars Bars and Frazzles, Phil finally found his calling when he landed a job in a bookshop. Inspired by all the amazing books written for children and young adults, he decided to have a go himself.
He’s recently finished a six month stint as the Booktrust’s online writer-in-residence.

Phil’s other books include:

- Bubble Wrap Boy – Charlie’s problems are way bigger than he is. He’s small, clumsy and has on over-protective mum watching his every move. But Charlie has a plan, a plan that might just make him feel ten feet tall…
