Book Description

The Headless Horseman, the world’s most famous ghost, makes a personal appearance at Everwell’s Emporium to launch his new perfume, “Decapitation pour l’Homme”. His overbearing gargoyle manager, however, is not impressed when the celebrity’s head is stolen during the event! Eefa Everwell recruits Luke, Resus and Cleo to help with the search, but Luke is on a head hunt of his own: for the skull left behind by the first skeleton to live in Scream Street. Once again Sir Otto Sneer is determined to thwart the trio, and when he launches his own Frankenstein-esque monster to terrorize them into handing over the relics of the first four founding fathers, it’s all they can do to keep their own heads…

More About the Author

Tommy Donbavand was born in Liverpool, England - but doesn't know any of The Beatles. When he was 11, his parents moved to Lancashire and, because they didn't trust him to forward the post, he had to go with them.

After an early career as a clown called Wobblebottom (no, really!), he joined the cast of the West End musical, Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story where he played the Clearlake MC for a total of eight years, including stints on the UK tour and in Toronto, Canada.

Tommy then moved into the world of theatre production, where he wrote, directed and appeared in theatre tours such as Robinson Crusoe, Hey Diddle Diddle, and Goldilocks & The Three Bears.

As an author, Tommy's new series of comedy horror novels, Scream Street, is published by Walker Books in the UK, Candlewick Press in the USA and major foreign publishers in many territories around the world. He also wrote five titles in the Too Ghoul For School series, published by Egmont Press under their 2Heads imprint.

He has recently written two books for specialist publisher, Barrington Stoke: Zombie! and The Uniform - and his book of drama activities for teachers, Making a Drama Out of a Crisis (Network Continuum), was published in April 2009.

The activities in Tommy's non-fiction books such as Boredom Busters and Quick Fixes For Bored Kids helped him to become a regular guest on radio stations around the UK. He even made several appearances on BBC Radio 2's Steve Wright In The Afternoon as the kids entertainment guy.

Tommy also writes for a number of magazines, such as the Times Educational Supplement, Practical Professional Child Care, Creative Steps and Scholastic's Junior Education. He was also one of the writers for the hit CBBC series, Planet Cook and pens tales from the island of Sodor for Thomas & Friends magazine.

In addition to his writing and acting, Tommy also runs creative writing workshops in primary schools across the north of England, teaches writing to adults and organises storytelling courses for SureStart.

Tommy spent a year as the writer-in-residence at Seven Stories, the centre for children's books in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and is very proud to have recently been made the UK's first RIF Ambassador by Reading Is Fundamental (part of the National Literacy Trust), attached to a primary school in Middlesbrough.

Tommy writes full-time and lives in Lancashire with his family. He has started to see sleep as a waste of good writing time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Skull of the Skeleton 6 April 2010
By Jenny, Wondrous Reads TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
In Skull of the Skeleton, Scream Street meets a new tenant: the Headless Horseman. They also have to deal with an unexpected visit from a member of the Sneer family, a dangerous Frankenstein-like demon, and the theft of the Horseman's head. It's all business as usual on Scream Street, and luckily Luke, Resus and Cleo are on the case.

I didn't think the plot of this book was as strong as previous installments, and it's probably my least favourite of the seven I've read so far. It didn't grab me as much as the others, and I don't think the general story allowed for as many laugh-out-loud moments as usual. I wasn't too fond of the Headless Horseman, though I did like new characters Femur the skeleton and Rocky the gargoyle. Although not the best visit to Scream Street, Skull of the Skeleton is still a fun read, and continues Luke's quest to find all six relics from the founding fathers.

By Free Spirit VINE VOICE

My ten year old son is a reluctant reader so I am constantly looking for books which will capture his interest and the Scream Street collection of books certainly has done that!

My little boy couldn't put the book down and is anxiously waiting for the next installment to be published.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series for young readers 22 April 2013
By Diane Viana-almeida - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My son (8) received the first two books in this series as a gift. He quickly fell in love with the funny characters and wanted the entire series. He enjoyed reading these books and would always share the strangest or funniest parts with the family.
5.0 out of 5 stars Another page turner! 10 May 2011
By K. Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My 10 year old daughter has never been a big reader but has fallen in love with this series. She loves that the characters are the same age as her. She particularly loves Cleo the Mummy. I'd highly recommend this for boys and girls since the boys would totally enjoy Resus the Vampire and Luke the Werewolf.
