Ben's parents treat him like a kid - so after a huge argument, he decides to leave home. He moves into a very cheap old flat that smells of damp and cabbage. Soon Ben and his two flatmates find hidden terrors inside the flat: rooms that shrink, giant cockroaches and jellyfish with eyes. It's as if their worst fears have come to life ... literally.

Part of the new Fresh Shades series, this is a shorter version of the original book. The Sharp Shades stories are illustrated and have simpler language and a larger font than the original book. They are perfect for older readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want the excitement of a great story told with pace and style.
