Creatch Battler

(2004)
(The first book in the Billy Clikk series)
A novel by

 
Billy Clikk's just your ordinary, run-of-the-mill . . . hero? A guy whose hobbies include skateboarding, extreme mountain biking - and a brand of snowboarding he wishes would include a few good old-fashioned body slams. Unfortunately, 12-year-old Billy's boring home town of Piffling, Indiana, will probably never host the X Games. But that doesn't stop him from bungee jumping off a bridge and winning the X-Sports Challenge in front of Dave's Cycle and Fitness.

Then one day, things suddenly get more interesting. Billy discovers his insect-exterminating parents - supposedly the best in Piffling - have been living a double life. In just a few short hours, he's sucked into a world that his parents have been trying to hide from him. And this world is much bigger, stranger, and scarier than the one he left behind. How could his own dull parents have so many secrets that even their secrets have secrets?

On the bright side, this could be Billy's chance to fight some real bad guys: the huge kind with teeth and too many hairy tentacles to count. Within a few hours of learning the truth, he's flying to India and testing out some very cool James Bond-style gadgetry, things no average 12-year-old can even imagine. But before Billy can fight alongside his parents, he'll have to prove himself. Being a hero doesn't always mean getting the bad guy - sometimes it means keeping a cool head to figure out what's really going on. And at the end of the day, Billy just might get to save the world - or go down trying.
