About the book

Synopsis

Super Animal Adventure Squad comprises two hilarious stories for you to enjoy: 'The Teatime of Doom' and 'The Case of the Baboon Bandit'! Join Agent K, Bearbot, Irwin, Rex and Beesley as they battle to solve two thrilling crimes.

In 'The Teatime of Doom', our heroes are faced with a Level 6 Cake Emergency as cakes suddenly disappear from bakeries across the country. Without a mid-afternoon treat, the very icing of society would dissolve! Can the SAAS recover the precious pastries in time, or will they come to a sticky end?

In 'The Case of the Baboon Bandit', pirates have stolen the world's most valuable treasure, the Jade Baboon of Rangoon. Does the squad have what it takes to defeat the Dread Pirate Green Beard? Cutlasses, cookery and comedy capers abound in this brilliantly funny follow-up!

What the critics say

A Python-esque, ridiculous sort of silly, mixed in with no end of really bad punning, alongside some more complicated gags
- Forbidden Planet

A set of agent profiles at the end of the book, along with a tongue-in-cheek page on how to draw Agent Beesley, round off a rather nice little package for kids
- Down The Tubes

Its characters are brilliant, and the stories are a great read for children and parents. The words are very descriptive, fun and sure to extend and challenge a child's vocabulary and understanding of it without turning them off literacy
- Tidy Books Blog

Turner is quite brilliant at pacing his comedic set pieces and the running gags with the various agents' distinctive personalities are an absolute joy!
- Broken Frontier

The tongue-in-cheek adventures will have children (and adults) rolling around with laughter and, more importantly, enjoying reading for simple pleasure
- Carousel

Gloriously, gloriously, snortingly silly stuff AND extremely cleverly written too
- The Little Wooden Horse

A bright, funny book

About the Author

James Turner started making comics as soon as he was first able to hold a pencil. His acclaimed web comic The Unfeasible Adventures of Beaver and Steve won tens of thousands of followers online, and he is currently writing the scripts for a series of books about the adventures of a group of half-dog, half-bean creatures called Mameshiba. He has sworn that he will not stop making comics until every bizarre character, every unfeasible adventure, and every terrible pun has been uncovered. But he might stop for a bit if someone offers him a biscuit.
