New series with crazily wild characters Funny illustrations by Walko A surprising twist in a fart-filled bandit story With a whoopee cushion
• • • • A great PAAAAAARRRP echoes through the Thunderwood! They say there are dangerous bandits living there. That's why it’s rare to see anyone going in, and even rarer to see anyone coming out again. But Robin dares to go there anyway – and is promptly taken prisoner by the wild gang. But Robin is smart, and he challenges the less smart bandits to a competition. Even so, Captain Thunderfart doesn’t like being taken for a ride! An adventure with a lot of farting in a horribly wild world of bandits.
