Meet Stix, the tiny but heroic mouse who might be living behind your washing machine.
But is he naughty enough to join the PESTS? Stix is the size of an egg cup, can jump the width of a dog's bottom, and LOVES cheese. That's because Stix is a mouse. He probably lives behind your washing machine, but you wouldn't know it, because his grandma taught him to always stay out of trouble and NEVER let the humans know he's there.
But now Stix has stumbled across PESTS - the Peewit Educatorium for Seriously Terrible Scoundrels - in the basement of his building, and along with a whole host of new pesty friends (and enemies), he's about to rip up Grandma's rule book and make a REAL pest of himself...
Here's what 9-year-old Blossom thought of Pests!
PESTS is an epic book full of fun, friendship and secret schools in the basement. I really love Stix and Batz, they make an excellent pair and it is by far the most incredible book ever. I found it so scary when Nuke-a-Pest first came. Stix is such a cute mouse (now I feel bad about putting rat poison in our loft). I have told all my friends about it and they are desperate to read it.
Emer Stamp is an incredible author with a great imagination. In short I think this is a great book for all ages.
