"A brilliant series book" (Write Away!)
More totally bonkers behaviour from practical jokers, the Crane Grove Crew. A laugh-till-you-cry book from the author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time.
From the Back Cover
Jenks was squirming back out of the hole with a wriggly penguin in his arms when I heard the sound of heavy keeper-boots running towards us. 'Holy Moses!' I hissed and turned to look for Barney. But Barney had vanished.
Dennis Sidebottom has moved next door to Ben - bringing his squeaky-clean kids with him. The Crane Grove Crew - Ben, Barney and Jenks - soon find themselves on the Sidebottom blacklist. Accused of being troublemakers and a bad influence, they decide to shake up the Sidebottom universe with the help of Agent Z, a meteorite and a stolen penguin.
It's Agent Z's finest hour!
