I borrowed this as an audio book from our local library on the recommendation of a librarian. Alan Brough is well known for his appearances on Spicks ‘n Specks, and I didn’t know he is also an author. This junior fiction story is imaginative and entertaining. Sure, it has the required poo and farting references that kids in this age group just can’t live without, but aside from that it is quite comical. Charlie’s desire for a paper run is thwarted by two old grannies who don’t want any competition, much less than from a 12 year old boy. He decides the only way to win is to fight them with the able-bodied assistance of his friend Hills (NEVER call her Hillary). Brough’s chapters entertain on every level, as the two gather an army for battle. The various characters add to this story in many ways, and for a crazy fictional story, it is easy to imagine each scene unfolding. Well worth reading, especially by any 10-12 year olds the you may know.
