Stinkbomb & Ketchup-Face and the Evilness of Pizza
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Adventure begins for Stinkbomb (occupation: Boy) and Ketchup-Face (occupation: Girl) with a knock at the door. Outside is a heavily disguised shopping trolley; it's The Great Kerfuffle Secret Service! King Toothbrush Weasel needs their help.
Malcolm the Cat (occupation: Army) has information about the Badgers (occupation: digging holes, frightening chickens, driving too fast). Currently in imprisoned for past misdemeanours, the badgers are planning escape! Whatever next? The Legendary Abandoned Pizza Mines of Great Kerfuffle; badgers disguised as moles; librarians; and The International Gang of Badgery Naughtiness - that's what. But can they save Great Kerfuffle from destruction?
Unashamedly silly, this badger-themed series of zanily illustrated adventures for Stinkbomb and Ketchup-Face delights in playing with conventions of language, genre, humour, and how stories work. Clever and fun!
