Synopsis

DFC Library: The Boss by John Aggs

Meet the crime-fighters from Class Five. When Nas and Bella overhear a crook planning a daring robbery at the castle, they know just who to tell. The Boss is the smartest kid in school. Never outsmarted or outwitted, he's marshalled his class into a crime-fighting unit that could run rings round Interpol. And with the class heading for a field trip to the castle that very day, it's the perfect chance to find out what the thieves are up to - and just maybe catch them red-handed...

Reviews

-good-factor ramped up to overload levels, The Boss is a welcome addition to the books collected from the pages of the DFC Broken Frontier Grippingly paced and intricately drawn -- Tom Gatti The Times The British comic is something quite unique and it's lovely to see it being reinterpreted for a modern reader ... Lots of fun and highly recommended as an introduction to comic books outside of the more well known publishers didyoueverstoptothink.wordpress.com

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
