Review: Artie and The Grime Wave

artie-and-the-grime-wave reviewed by a kidTitle: Artie and The Grime Wave

Author and illustrator: Richard Roxburgh

Publisher: Allen and Unwin

This week I am handing over to Book Boy Junior (9) for the review.

About the book: While Artie and his best friend Bumshoe are riding to town to replace Artie’s shoes (which were thrown on a power line), they stumble upon a cave of possibly stolen stuff! They try to get proof that it’s stolen and get themselves captured so they have to escape. Lots of other funny things happen.

What I thought: This book was exciting and very funny. The illustrations are detailed and really add to the book. My favourite character was Mary, who is a scary guy with a tattoo on his face.

I would recommend the book for ages 7-9. If you like Anh Do’s books or the Tom Gates series, I think you would also like this book.

Buy Artie and The Grime Wave.
