Lemony Snicket fans will love the delightful Crumb children and the incredible inventions their father has created around them. With so much imagination around them, there’s never a dull moment in the Crumb household. And that’s especially true when they come across the notorious robbers – The Unstoppables. The evil gang are determined to seal the fabulous Golden Elephant of Heera. While the Crumb’s inventive father creates a special glass case to protect the elephant, the children set about defeating the gang. It’s all good knockabout humour richly illustrated throughout.


Baddies, Beasties and a Sprinkling of Crumbs by Tracey Corderoy

Otto, Martha and Scarlett Crumb are three most unusual children. With their dad, Henrig, busy inventing a special case to protect the Golden Elephant of Heera, they're expecting to look after themselves over the summer. Yet suddenly Henrig's long-lost sister turns up - and she's beastly! The children think things can't get any worse ...but then the Unstoppables, a notorious gang of robbers, set their sights on Henrig's special case, and it seems they'll stop at nothing to get their hands on it...
