Synopsis

DFC Library The Diamond Egg of Wonders by Robin Etherington

Welcome to the Isla de Monstera, home of the world's only tap-dancing, banana-loving, rust-fighting, coconut-talking, and crime-busting organisation...Monkey Nuts! In their very first adventure, Sid, Rivet and Chief Tuft are forced to do battle against a horde of random oddballs and weirdos. When a mysterious signal begins to drive the local loonies into a crazy rage, the Monkey Nuts team have no choice but to grab their masks and get heroic! This title presents monster-catching action from the DFC Libray.

Reviews

The sense of all-out fun and humour that you get from this book is a clear marker of a book written purely to entertain Armadillo Magazine 20101214 Rich in detail and colour, you'll want to go back again and again over every page to see what you missed the first and second time around ... It's pacy, it's funny and it deserves a place on your shelves Bear Alley 20101028 It's a deliberately rambling, manic burst of comic energy across it's busy and brightly coloured pages. Lots and lots of fun, lots of silly gags ... a manic, full on adventure serial, heavy on the laughs and with some very nice, suitably kinetic artwork -- Richard Bruton Forbidden Planet Blog 20100915 Filled with unique characters, belly-laughing jokes and fantastic illustrations this is an adventure for any crime-busting, comic-loving fan Scribbler 20110210 The Etherington Brothers have crafted a fun and action packed story.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
