About the Book

With only 50 dollars to their name, Sam Kellow and his family arrive in Toronto to sell his mother's latest painting. Wearing his "Sonic the Hedgehog" pyjamas, Sam sleep-walks out of the hotel room and wakes to find the door firmly closed behind him. Exploring the hotel hallway, Sam meets Nasty Muriel, Droopy George and their chickenpox covered son Wilfred. How Sam gains his opportunity to win the Big Bazoohley ... the big Jackpot and save his family's finances is hilarious. A zany adventure. impossible to put down. Peter Carey's first children's book is a sparkling mix of fantasy, reality and humour. A vastly enjoyable tale from one of the great storytellers of our century.
