About the Book
Christmas was always a special time in the Finny family home despite them living deep under the ocean. This year, Christmas is about to go very wrong indeed. Skinny Finny and his twin brother, Tubby wake on Christmas morning to find their parents missing. They set out to find them and to ruin Christmas in the process. Heaven help anyone who gets in their way … Will the world famous MI5 agent, Super Spy Wobblebottom be able to stop Skinny Finny from ruining Christmas for children all around the world? Or will Skinny Finny and his ingenious inventions triumph? The Crazy Christmas Caper is perfect for young readers of 7-12 years old who enjoy a tale that delivers suspense and laughs in equal measure. It’s also perfect for adults to read to children of younger ages. A chapter each night will send parent and child to bed with a sense of wonder and, perhaps, a grin on their face!
About the Author
Andrew Guile was born in Reading, England in 1972. He has spent most of his working life as a lawyer in London (and this is still his ‘day job’). Andrew has loved writing all his life and had always imagined his first book would be a fantasy novel. The Amazing Adventures of Skinny Finny and Super Spy Wobblebottom, while not fantasy, do have fantasy elements and the first outing, The Crazy Christmas Caper, has a clear leaning towards the fantastic. Andrew hopes that this story will be the first of many.
