Special Agent Fangs Enigma and his sidekick, werewolf Agent Puppy Brown, were recruited by secret intelligence agency MP1 (Monster Protection, 1st division) to stop the world's super(natural) villains and monster criminals from realizing their evil plans. In Operation: Golden Bum, Agents Fangs and Brown are drafted in to investigate a string of high-profile robberies. The presence of an unidentifiable foul smell at all of the crime scenes leads MP1 to suspect that this is no ordinary robber but one with magical abilities. Can the world's greatest vampire spy and his sidekick sniff out the thief before he puts his stinker of a plan into action?
Featuring black and white illustrations throughout and short filmic chapters, action-packed plots and caper-style comedy perfect to build reader-confidence, especially among reluctant boy readers - and includes puzzles and code-breakers to encourage learning and rereading.
