A found or stolen fossil may or may not be magic. Either way the results include zits, the runs and a bit of snogging! It's pretty disgusting in places, perfect for a certain type of young person!
Despite, the gruesomeness, some interesting themes are explored; guilt, morality, the cause and effect of our actions. Two such ideas are quoted by characters in the story:
- You get what you wish for
- You get out of this word what you put in
A cheeky book like this, is a great way to explore these themes with a reading partner.
