About the book (for ages 7 - 9)

You might have heard how the universe began with the Big Bang? Well, the universe as Jim Wimple knows it is about to end. With a Bazoom!

Not only are Bazoom! scooters super fast and deadly cool, but fierce (and swoonsome) older girl Fiona has just started riding hers to and from school, and possibly out of Jim's life forever. Disaster! Jim Wimple needs a Bazoom, and fast. So he and his best friend Will devise a clever scheme, which involves sneaking into Dad's workplace. But when the boys break into Mallet & Mullet's 'accountancy' office they find that the walls are lined with ancient portraits, the staff are highly secretive, and Jim's dad's office bears the sign 'G Reaper'... And then all hell really breaks loose.

What would YOU do if you thought your dad might be... Death?! 


Praise for Jim Reaper

"Laugh? I almost kicked the bucket!" – Jonathan Meres, author of The World of Norm

"Hilarious and fun and spooky and brilliant – I LOVE Jim Reaper!"– Pamela Butchart, author of Baby Aliens Got My Teacher
