Summary:

"One moment I was standing there, sword raised, knees trembling. The next, in a blur of fur and fury, the hellish creature was flying towards me, its huge front paws extended and savage claws aiming straight at my hammering heart..." Barnaby Grimes is a tick-tock lad - he'll deliver any message anywhere anytime. As fast as possible. Tick-tock - time is money! But strange things are afoot. One moonlit night, as Barnaby highstacks above the city, leaping from roof to roof, gutter to gable, pillar to pediment, a huge beast attacks. He barely escapes with his life. And now his friend Old Benjamin has disappeared...

    I started out liking this book, but lost interest when the author began beating the reader over the head with "clues" about how the book ends. I like a good book that offers delicately sprinkled hints, but I had the whole thing figured out by the time the book was a quarter of the way through. For parents: This book offers some pretty graphic descriptions of gore and mayhem. Not for little guys. Narration: Pretty good. Narrator was perpetually upbeat, which didn't fit much of the book, but it wasn't distracting.
