Great story especially for boys or tomboys

Black Baron by Robyn Opie

Black Baron

Available in paperback.


Black Baron is a cockroach but not just any cockroach; he’s a racing champion owned by Jake.

After a near miss with his cleaning mad mum [Black Baron is kept in an old shoebox under Jake’s bed], Jake promises to clean his room himself. Unfortunately, the world is full of good intentions, and a lapse by Jake means that Black Baron is discovered, and his dad phones the pest exterminator.

As Jake and Black Baron’s hilarious adventures unfold, at every page turn you find yourself asking; Is Black Baron doomed? Will he possibly escape his seemingly inevitable fate?

Only by reading the story will you find out…

As a mother of a son I am sure that this highly entertaining story will hold great appeal especially to boys [or tomboys].
