Blacky the farting dog has a mission that Marcus and Dylan can't refuse. Trouble is, this mission involves a monstrous saltwater crocodile who would much rather chomp on a human for dinner than have a civilised conversation.

Of course, there's also the small matter of a giant big-game hunter on a collision course with our heroes. And will Marcus be any match for his mean older sister Rose and her light-sabre-wielding best friend Cy Ob Han?

Blacky the master of disguise is back, full of attitude and as smelly as ever.

Barry Jonsberg's young adult novels, The Whole Business with Kiffo and the Pitbull and It's Not All About YOU, Calma! were shortlisted for the Children's Book Council Book of the Year, Older Readers, awards. It's Not All About YOU, Calma! also won the Adelaide Festival Award for Children's Literature, Dreamrider was shortlisted in the NSW Premier's Awards for the Ethel Turner prize and Cassie was shortlisted for the Children's Peace Literature Award.
Barry lives in Darwin with his wife, children and two dogs. His books have been published in the US, UK, France, Poland, Germany and China.

A highly amusing romp with an ecological message, this had me laughing out loud... Assured, confident, this is more of a sustained read than you might initially expect and I would happily pass it to boys who are reading fluently and looking for books to really get them 'flying'.
