A decade in the future, humanity thrives in the absence of sickness and disease.

We owe our good health to a humble parasite – a genetically engineered tapeworm developed by the pioneering SymboGen Corporation. When implanted, the tapeworm protects us from illness, boosts our immune system – even secretes designer drugs. It’s been successful beyond the scientists’ wildest dreams. Now, years on, almost every human being has a SymboGen tapeworm living within them.

But these parasites are getting restless. They want their own lives…and will do anything to get them.


WOAH! !!!

Stand back everyone this is a cracker of a book.

Sally, Sal for short is finding it hard to find the right words to say. …..a lot!

The reason for this is because she had a really bad car accident and was in a coma, she was pronounced brain dead and her parents were asked to turn her machine off.

Then all of a sudden just before they pull the plug Sally wakes up!

How I hear you say?

Well ……

This is all down to a tapeworm!!

Now I heard you say EWWWWW! I did.

BUT wait a minute, did you know ……?

1. All that you need to do is take 1 little tablet brought to you by SymboGen and the Intestinal Bodyguard will do all of the work for you.
This means, no illnesses ie. Viruses, cancers, it even controls your contraception for you!

2. The Intestinal Bodyguard sits in your stomach and just gets on with it, you don’t even know it’s there.

3. Million and millions of people use The Intestinal Bodyguard by SymboGen with no side effects what so ever!

And so Sally wakes up after being implanted with a little bodyguard and has to start again, literally, she is officially only 6 years old.

She has had to learn to walk, talk etc.
But she has a completely different personality to Sally who she was before.

Everything is peachy and she is getting along lovely thank you very much, until these darn sleep walkers start turning up, banging on her doors and windows.

She gets a secret message that ties to a childrens poem and the ride starts from there.

I could put in loads of spoilers but I won’t, read it and take the journey by yourself.

BTW, Tansy …… Loved her!

Enjoy the Riddle,
