When I happened across 'The Borribles Go For Broke' a few years later, I was again enthralled by these captivating hooligans.
It was not until over a decade later that I discovered 'The Borribles: Across The Dark Metropolis' while prowling the internet. After obtaining an out-of-print copy of this third borrible book, I was soon engrossed in their latest adventure.
Through the soot and grime of a London that tourists never see, the borribles attempt to lead Sam, the horse, to Neasdon where it could live in peace. During the exhausting journey through old buildings and junk yards the compact crew are forced to dodge the likes of Inspector Sussworth, a dapper power monger, and the obnoxious Sgt. Hanks. The determined little people persevere even when they encounter the dregs of society such as the so-called "meffos" who worship alcohol and drugs. Through it all the band of borribles trudge on to their distant destination.
If anyone has any biographical information on Michael De Larrabeiti, I would appreciate it if you would enlighten me. All I know about this British author is that he was born in 1937 and there was some controversy over releasing 'The Borribles: Across The Dark Metropolis' in hard cover.
Since he was born in 1937, its unlikely we'll see any more books...
