The Bad Guys - Episode 1

Mr Wolf. Mr Shark. Mr Snake. Mr Piranha.

But these guys want to be HEROES. And they're going to prove it by doing good deeds... whether YOU want them to or not.

Buckle up for the funniest, naughtiest and coolest book you'll ever read - it's time to meet the BAD GUYS.


I don't know what Aaron Blabey is on, but I want some... This is a great story.

If your children enjoy the humour of movies like Madagascar, if your 8- or 9-year-old never voluntarily picks up a book, or if your younger reader is heading towards chapter books but isn't quite there yet: this is the book for them.
Blabey turns his hand to junior chapter books with hilarious effect. He has ticked all the right boxes to encourage early and struggling readers - The Bad Guys is good quality fun that will delight children.
