    Artie and Bumshoe have cracked a local crime gang. They're determined to expose it, but with the meglomaniac Mayor Grime in charge and toting a gang of shady characters, they may have bitten off more than they can chew. Luckily, Auntie-boy has a few tricks up her sleeve.... Slapstick humour a la Roald Dahl and the Simpsons. Fans of David Walliams would also love this. Not only can the talented Richard Roxburgh act, he can write and draw as well. Bravo! 9-11 year olds (good 8 y.o readers would cope fine). Australian. Mandy.

    Artie and his best friend Bumshoe have stumbled upon a Cave-of-Possibly-Stolen-Stuff, and along with it a gang of shady characters including scary Mary, fang-toothed Funnel-web and the devious Mayor Grime...Meanwhile, Artie's next-door neighbour Gladys's beloved tortoise Gareth has gone missing... and Artie suspects the cave has something to do with it...Artie and Bumshoe's attempt to catch the criminals in the act leads to a chaotic chain of events that involves kidnapping, puppy-dog cutlets, modern art and pioneering the sport of the bungee-wedgie...It's a sticky situation and if Artie's going to escape he might need help from family, friends and a little old lady with a bizarre inventory of weapons - including the Fartex 120Y.
