Being a Borrible is far from easy, but it's full of bravery, treachery and excitement. They are outcasts and like it that way. But, to any vigilant policemen, their pointed ears prove that they aren't in fact runaway children. Then it's time for quick wits and the Borrible motto 'Don't get caught!'In the last instalment of this great adventure, Battersea is no longer safe for Borribles. The London Police are closing in, using their Special Borrible Group - a secret unit dedicated to finding Borribles and clipping their ears.

It's now time to break away, escort their old friend Sam to safety in Neasden, then return to the old Borrible life of independence and freedom. So begins a perilous trek across the dark metropolis - a journey that will test the courage and cunning of the adventurers to the very limits.This ebook edition includes that wonderful China MiƩville introduction, plus colourful descriptions of Borribles and other characters.
