Synopsis

The Bare Bum Gang and the Football Face-off by Anthony McGowan

Join Ludo, Noah, Jamie and Phillip - the Bare Bum Gang - as they defend their gang headquarters with Smarties tube fart bombs and other ingenious traps. The gang's new (and unwanted!) name is bad enough, but things are about to get much worse. Their number 1 enemies have challenged them to a football match, and the prize at stake is the gang den. And guess what - they're all completely rubbish at football! How can they save the den? How can they get back their pride? Find out in the first Bare Bum Gang adventure!

Reviews

Besides getting the all-male world of small boys to a T, it has irresistible instructions about how to make fart-bombs -- Amanda Craig The Times Likely to appeal even to reluctant readers because it is funny and uninhibitedly improper, it is also well observed about boys and their attitude to girls -- Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times An engagingly witty story, it offers ready boy-appeal - though girls, too, will appreciate its sharp stance on gender stereotyping -- Kate Agnew Guardian Education There's a fine line between crude and funny, and McGowan treads it expertly. If this doesn't get 7- to 9-year-olds reading, nothing will -- Dinah Hall Daily Telegraph A laugh-out-loud tale -- Jennifer Taylor The Bookseller
