A fast and funny adventure about a kid who can detach his limbs, send them off independently, and then reassemble himself at will.

John Johnson is a bit weird. He falls apart - literally. A sneeze can blast his head off. His hands can run about by themselves. He can pull himself together from assembled bits in the time it takes to make a Vegemite sandwich. But he's never had to pack himself into a suitcase before, or be posted to the US of A to rescue his best friend Crystal. She's been kidnapped by a crime boss with four arms

A crazy adventure about friendship, body parts and hamburgers.

Author bio:

Scot wasn't born reading and writing; in fact he left school in year eleven to undertake an apprenticeship in gardening with the local council. His first fiction for young readers, One Dead Seagull, was published after he attended a writing conference with John Marsden. His many books since include Burning Eddy, short-listed for both the CBCA and NSW Premier's Literary awards. Scot lives with his wife and three children, two dogs and some chooks in the bush in Eastern Victoria. He spends half the year writing and half the year on the road talking to mostly young people about his books and the craft of writing.
