Aaron Blabey‘s Bad Guys are back in Mission Unpluckable, the second book in The Bad Guys series. Desperate to prove that they really are good guys, Wolf has come up with another plan: they will break into a chicken farm to free all the poor chickens being kept prisoner there.

For this daring attempt, however, they need the help of Tarantula to get through the high security. Is Tarantula ready to become a ‘good guy’ too?
Unfortunately for Snake, he loves chickens, and not in a give them a hug sort of way. Will he be able to control his appetite when let loose in the chook pen? Has the gang bitten off more than they can chew? And have they now angered someone they really shouldn’t have?

Discover the answers in this hilarious installment of the adventures of Mr Wolf and his gang Snake, Shark and Piranha. Hold your breath for dangers such as snake twisting though the laser beams. Gasp at the disguises – Shark disguised as a chicken is something to behold and laugh aloud at, as this team bumbles its way through another rescue.

I love the way this series plays with perceptions of good guys and bad guys. It’s an entertaining read for anyone from seven years up and there is no need to have read the first in the series to understand this one (though I urge you to – it’s hilarious too.)
