Bestselling author Eoin Colfer delights in this hilarious and heartwarming story about the ever-incorrigible Benny Shaw.

Benny Shaw, a sports-obsessed, carefree kid is convinced that he can take on the world--until he spends the summer living with his grandfather and meets resident tomboy and all-around tough-girl Babe Meara.
Benny may be a wise guy, but Babe is at least three steps ahead of him, especially on her territory. When a money-making business venture arises, however, Babe just might consider Benny as her partner, and possibly a friend. But things become complicated, and dangerous, when the troublesome Furty Howlin starts clamoring for a slice of the action.

    " 4.5 stars. I laughed loudly so many times that my 14 yo son pressed me to finish so he could have a turn. But the thing about Colfer is, his books have excitement, character development, and even a little emotional stuff too. This had all of the above in spades. "
