Once upon a time there was a teenager, called Lizzie, who had the most untidy bedroom floor. Ever. Under the mattress on her bed, there was a sandwich, that had been there so long, it had become a unique life form, black, slimy and malevolent. Naturally, Auntie Lizzie does not like her room being looked at, so she keeps it locked. Until one day, her niece Erin finds the door open and ventures inside. A sudden sting on her finger shrinks her until she is tiny and leaves her frightened and alone on the bedroom floor, where she has to make new friends and fight off unexpected dangers and enemies until she discovers the real reason she is there and the terrible task that faces her.
Philip Gowler is a father of three and grandfather of two, working as a Therapist specialising in helping people with emotional problems and mental health issues. This book has been inspired by two of his daughters, Claire and Elizabeth, who had incredibly untidy bedrooms as teenagers. He swore he would get his revenge - and this is it. The black evil sandwich was real, as were the Musty Mountains and Used Tissue Swamp. The book was originally intended as a present for his granddaughter Erin, but having written it, he thought 'Why not publish it?' So here it is. Enjoy!
