A blob of slime has broken out of the prison in which it has been kept for years. As it slithers in escape it slurps up everything in its path. Nothing is safe. Especially not Measle Stubbs. For the slippery stomach has gobbled up a gaggle of wrathmonks, and in doing so has ingested their dislike of Measle. Now the blob is after him. And nothing can stop it. Not Iggy Niggle. Not Nanny Flannel. Not Tinker the dog. But it has enjoyed eating them ...Can Measle gulp down his fear and beat the Slitherghoul ...before the Slitherghoul gulps him down?

`[Of previous Measle books]: 'Ogilvy is a good inventive storyteller who writes with infectious enthusiasm . . .' Jan Mark, TES
`. . . badder baddies, more dastardly plots, wicked spells - and what's more, our hero has his first bath in years!' The Sunday Express
`The writing is perfectly pitched for children aged 9 to 12, with one-liners and witty jokes that will tickle the ribs of adults too.' The Daily Express
`Brilliant. It's a work that's comparable to Roald Dahl' Aberdeen Evening Express
`It's scary, very scary, but there's a good chance that Measle can save the day. Ideal for serialised read-aloud for younger children, or for competent readers' Glasgow Herald
