Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week

The Enemy by Charlie Higson


...Set in London, from Archway Pool and the Holloway Road Waitrose to Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London, it follows a band of children trying to survive under repeated attack from slow-witted, drooling, cannibal adults. It is great at adrenaline-inducing conflict, and as yucky as could be wished for. Written in a pacey vernacular, with such phrases as "well dead" and "bare evil" (ie, "really evil"), it is just the thing for youngsters who enjoy Fungus the Bogeyman, the London Dungeon and World of Warcraft computer games and are getting a taste for horror films...

I love Charlie Higson, and the stuff he write for adults. His kids books are great too, and when everyone else seems to be writing for girls were glad he provides something the boys can get stuck into.
