It's always a good day when I read one of Tommy Donbavand's children's books. I laugh all the way though them and constantly ask myself why one of his series hasn't yet been adapted for TV. They'd be perfect for a half-hour animated show on a Saturday, and I'm 100% positive kids would love it. His books are all about vampires and werewolves and other such creatures which, let's be honest, is *always* welcome. The more monsters the better, yes?
In Codename: The Tickler, Agents Fangs Enigma and Puppy Brown are on another top secret mission to try and locate the whereabouts of the Will Pill, a pill with ability to control minds. Snores the ogre has stolen it but he doesn't really seem the type to have masterminded a criminal operation, so it's up to Fangs and Puppy to find out just who is behind it all; that's if they don't get tickled to death in the process!
This book introduced a fantastic character: Tickler the pixie. I'm a big fan of the fae and love it when they show up in books I read, especially when they're tiny and have multiple arms. Ha! The imagination behind these stories is brilliant and seems to get better with each instalment. This second book even ventures to a circus, where a whole host of crazy things happen, providing lots of laughs and endless enjoyment. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!
