Titus and Miranda are going crazy with their mum’s ridiculous rules. The long list of rules includes ‘no pretending your peas are an army’, ‘no having kippers for breakfast’ (or else your hands will turn into claws), and ‘don’t break eggs’ (or your body will go egg shaped). One day Miranda decides she’s done with rules, and leads Titus on a life-changing journey. Excitement turns to fear when they discover the home of the sinister Mouth Collector.Winner of the 2003 UK Arts Council Children’s Award
