Third in the Rudy series - feel the power of the pack!

When Rudy goes to Femi's house for a sleepover, he discovers that his friend has been keeping a secret: Femi sleepwalks. And when Rudy accidentally leaves the bedroom window open he learns that not only does Femi walk in his sleep, he also skateboards in his sleep. At great speed. Can he guide Femi back to safety without waking him up?

The Rudy series is a celebration of the power of the pack, wherever you might find it. Family, friends, loved ones; your pack is where you feel you are home. Rudy has a nose for adventure, powered by strong friendships and a belief that kindness and empathy for others will always win the day!

Bridging the gap between picture books and independent reading, these books are perfect for reluctant readers. Breathtaking two-color illustrations throughout make these books look howlingly good. Ideal reading for fans of Hotel Transylvania and Super Monsters on Netflix!


"With their short chapters, bright illustrations and snappy, appealing stories, this series is great for readers ready to start reading on their own and our supernatural little heroes have lots in common with their readers." -  LoveReading4Kids
