How to Hypnotise a Droid (Hectic Electric #1)
PUBLICATION JULY 2017
This madcap comedy-adventure series is completely hectic - and also heart-warming, ridiculously funny and wildly addictive!
One day, Joshie is eating breakfast when a fancy robot thingy arrives in a box. The cool thing? It's actually an incredibly sophisticated droid. The not-so-cool thing? It's programmed to babysit Joshie while his mum is at work (which is ALL THE TIME).
Joshie has scared off a LOT of babysitters, but that's only because he DOESN'T NEED A BABYSITTER. And he has big plans to get rid of this one too. But he's not counting on Droid Dude being kinda fun - or all the whole new level of sticky, icky messes you can get into when your babysitter has an off switch!
An irrepressible and assured debut from hot new talent Joshua Lefers.
Joshie Lefers may be a grown up, but he still acts a lot like a kid - so it makes perfect sense that he's now writing for kids. Like Joshie Hectic, the cheeky protagonist in Hectic Electric, Joshie-the-author has never had a dull day in his life. When he's not writing madcap comedy, Lefers is usually founding new companies (he currently has 18, but who's counting after a baker's dozen?), executive-producing films or hosting his own TV series on Foxtel. Lefers has designed several award-winning bars, clubs and restaurants, runs Nickelodeon's Slimefest and has a beer company with products in over 10,000 Australian venues. Hectic Electric is Joshie Lefers' first series for kids.
