‘Spangles McNasty and the Fish of Gold’ is a perfectly marvellous summer romp which will have you laughing out loud at the ludicrous villains and outrageously bonkers storyline. A new fiction series for confident readers created by Steve Webb and sublimely illustrated by Chris Mould will appeal to fans of horrid humour Welcome to Bitterly Bay, where the nastiest of nasty scoundrels Spangles McNasty has decided to spend his summer doing what he loves the most: shouting at babies, pulling faces at old ladies, eating cold chips from bins and best of all, collecting other people’s spangly things! Along with his nutty sidekick Sausage-face Pete they are on a dastardly mission to steal all of the goldfish in the town. Convinced that they are in fact made out of real gold and will grow to the size of a whale, they plan to melt them down and make themselves millionaires. Can anyone thwart their peculiar plan? Step forward Freddie Taylor who is on his own quest for a goldfish not realising he is about to get caught up in a chaotic carnival of events.
This book is a fantastic crazy read which is sure to captivate readers with its quirky, eccentric characters who will whip you up into a frenzy and throw you around like the bumpiest of fairground rides. Combined with Chris Mould’s brilliantly humorous illustrations which capture the confusion and sheer hilarity of the story, this book is hugely appealing and entertaining. Who could resist this marvellous, madcap adventure? It is ideally suited for children who love gloriously silly details and horrible baddies. A truly wonderful collaboration which will leave you wanting more!
Look out for further bonkers adventures from this disgusting duo in ‘Spangles McNasty and the Tunnel of Doom’ due for release in Spring 2017..
