Meet Zachary Ruthless.
Better yet, don't meet him. In fact, if you see him coming run as fast as you can the opposite way. Maybe you should start running now, just to be safe.
Because Zachary Ruthless only looks like he's the nicest ten-year old boy in the world. Actually, he's evil and horrible and terrible and a bunch of other bad things we don't like to think about. Why, in this book alone he shoots brain-erasing lasers, sets loose vicious insects and chews nasty, vegetable-flavoured gum.
In fact, his adventures are so rotten you might want to just back away very slowly ... before it's too late.
