With the help of a magical book, Noah Wriggle and his best friend Blue like to design weird and wonderful animal mash-up creations – and then bring them to life! But sometimes their mash-imals love being alive just a little TOO much…

In The Speedy Spidersaurus, a scary T-Rex is mashed up with a tiny spider, creating an eight-legged dinosaur!

But when Spidey gets loose at school, can Noah and Blue track him down before their teacher does?


Noah loves inventing. And with the help of a mysterious book called “Zooniverse”, that once belonged to his inventor grandfather, Noah can create some awesome things...

Every Thursday, when his parents leave for work early, Noah’s best friend Blue arrives and they design and bring to life amazing creatures. On this adventure, they create a T-Rex crossed with a small spider that forms a hungry eight legged dinosaur.

An eight legged dinosaur sounds great, but when Spidey gets loose at school, mayhem erupts. Can the boys find Spidey?

This is the first book in a new series by fantastic Australian author Nova Weetman, and it is sure to get readers hooked and wanting to read them all!

This is an action-packed zany adventure that is ideally suited to younger readers 8+, particularly boys.
