The kids from Room 14 have had a brilliant week at school camp and are packed up and ready to go home. But the bus doesn't arrive. And then they find they can't contact anyone outside. Landlines, mobile phones, the internet...all communication has been jammed. They slowly discover that a strange group called the BERP Government of Waikato has taken control of the region, forbidding all movement in and out. The Room 14 kids and their teacher, Mrs Gunn, decide to fight back, coming up with some highly risky strategies. Don't Mess with These Kids! is based on real Kiwi kids from a real Kiwi school.
Dr Doug Wilson was originally a medical academic. He spent many years in the pharmaceutical industry with Boehringer Ingelheim, both in the US and Germany. Dr Wilson is now a consultant to the biotechnology sector ... and a writer. While Doug knew early on that he wanted to be an author, it was a long journey getting there. He struggled with dyslexia when first trying to write, then became sidetracked with his successful medical career. He began telling stories again once he had grandchildren, recounting the fantastic tales of his boy adventurer, Tom Hassler.
