For Tad Spencer, only son of a fabulously wealthy businessman, every day is like Christmas. He lives in a mansion, has a maid, servants, every toy imaginable. He has it all - until the day he wishes he was someone else.

Suddenly, Tad wakes up as Bob Snarby, trapped in a fi lthy and corrupt carnival world inhabited by hostile ingrates, hopeless criminals, and mysterious fortune tellers. But Tad discovers he's there for a reason when he begins to untangle a secret that could reveal an enemy no one could have imagined . . .

In this sardonic swap from New York Times bestselling author Anthony Horowitz, readers will not only be entertained, but reminded to be careful what they wish for - and happy for what they have.
