“Mummy, that Gremlin snuck through in the night!
She tiptoed inside when we turned out the light!
She opened my jewel box and tried on my hat.
How can you trust such a Gremlin as that?”
Emlyn is sure a Gremlin sneaks into the house at night. In the morning, she finds her room a mess, with gadgets and glitter strewn everywhere. Moose, her Great Dane, should be guarding the house, but he’s so afraid he hides in his fort!
Emlyn’s mums insist Gremlins aren’t real, but one day, Emlyn overhears the truth… and then she meets Gremlin for herself.
Tonight, just as Emlyn began to nod off,
She heard grappling sounds and a dry little cough.
Gremlin popped over the wide window ledge.
Emlyn gasped. “Have you been dragged through a hedge?”
Emlyn has struck up a friendship with the Gremlin that sneaks into the house at night, but she’s getting worried. Where can Gremlin be? And why hasn’t she returned to play with Emlyn’s shiny toys and jewellery – her favourite things?
Could the horrible mean cat next door be blocking her from throwing her grappling hook over the window ledge? Join Emlyn, Gremlin and Moose as they outsmart that mean old cat Charlie, once and for all!
“And Emlyn, I think there’s a secret you’re keeping…. Does somebody visit at night while we’re sleeping?”
“No,” Emlyn said (and the truth she did tell,
For Gremlin now came in the daytime as well!)
Gremlin arrives on the same day Emlyn is expecting her family for a barbeque, but promises to stay upstairs while Emlyn’s Mummy and Mama prepare for lunch.
All the young cousins are supposed to take family photographs in matching pyjamas—but Gremlin’s curiosity might ruin the picture, and get both her—and Emlyn—in big trouble!
