‘But where are we going to find fresh hare ears and an eyeball?’ asked Calypso. ‘There’s no way I’m going to hurt an animal. Not even to help your grumpy aunt.’
Alfie nodded. ‘I agree.’
Then on the top shelf he spotted them. EVIL EYE GOBSTOPPERS.
‘We’ll use one of those sweets for an eyeball!’ he said.
The gobstoppers were large and bloodshot. They stared out of the jar. Alfie selected a large dark brown eyeball with a big black pupil.
‘What about the hare ears, Alfie?’
‘That plant in the corner has leaves a bit like ears, long and sort of pointed.’
Calypso looked doubtful.
‘Let’s just give it a go,’ said Alfie.

Gargantis (The Legends of Eerie-on-Sea, Book 2, Monster, Harbor, Pier, Monster in the Sky, Purple, Boy, Girl, Running, Cat, Children's Books, Fantasy, Magic, Monsters, Mystery
A vast creature – with the head of an anglerfish and dozens of fins along its sinewy – is “swimming” in the sky over Eerie-on-Sea. It has two huge flippers, a low-slung mouth filled with tusks, and gigantic ichthyosaur eyes. The creature is wreathed in storm clouds and lightning  that seem to pour off its fins. It uses its giant flippers to smash the town to pieces, while lots of little medieval people run away.
