Hal loves cheese, but lately, cheese hasn’t been Hal’s friend at all. In fact, it’s been giving him some really bad nightmares – CHEESEMARES! Horrible ones about vampires with poisonous cowboy boots, or electric newsreaders with skin-melting farts!

Armed with a backpack full of snacks, a lunch packed by his Mum, and their fat dog Rufus, Hal sets off to solve the mystery of the Cheesemares, little knowing that his adventure will lead him not just to Mr Halloumi’s Cheese shop down the road, but to the country of Bovinia to confront the evil Contessa von Udderstein and her evil cow army – and home in time for dinner!

Cheesemares is a great laugh for kids and just the sort of thing to get their imaginations ticking over at double speed – a cheese factory full of nasty cows? Genius! Pitched at the 5 to 8 year market, my nine-year-old finished Cheesemares in an hour, laughing the whole way through and was still talking about it a week later, making it well worth the investment.
