Book Description

A delightful, funny and refreshing new chapter book for younger readers aged 8-10 years, with the side-splitting adventures and misadventures of young Archie Roach. Archie is new in town, trying to find his feet (literally) and live down his gory reputation at his last school for the bloodiest bonepiercingest leg fracture in the history of the world. Trying to make new friends is a bit of a struggle, but he manages to do it, despite having the mingiest skinflint in the history of the world for a mum and a dad who is convinced that Roachs are destined to be useless at everything. When Archie meets up with the town's mysterious maggot smuggler his life changes for the better - and his wacky adventures will be a draw card for young readers, boys in particular. Comparable to Joy Cowley's much-loved Wild West series, this exciting new writer for junior readers brings us the first of many adventures with Archie.
