After telling stories about Skinny Finny and Super Spy Wobblebottom for years, Andrew Guile decided it was time to share them with others.

Andrew, aged 45, said: “They are humorous adventure stories involving characters with silly names, doing and saying silly things that children will love.”

But his new book, The Mad Moon Mission, is about more than just silliness, he says.

“My first book, The Crazy Christmas Caper, had a real message about what it means to be brothers,” Andrew said.

“The Mad Moon Mission looks at how different people can view a situation in completely different ways and includes real science.

“I live in hope that my stories will open children’s eyes and hearts to new issues and new horizons, and give them a few laughs along the way.”

Ten-year-old Skinny Finny and his twin brother, Tubby, are beginning a new life in London when their arch enemy, the evil Dr Buttscratcher, and his shadowy sidekick begin terrorising unsuspecting joggers and the elderly.

Skinny Finny’s hopes for a normal life are shattered as he is set on a collision course with Dr Buttscratcher and his plans for world domination.

Will Skinny Finny join forces once again with the British agent, Super Spy Wobblebottom?

The Mad Moon Mission is available from Waterstones and Amazon.
