Astro’s Adventures: The Gypsy Curse by Susan Day
In this fun children’s book, The Gypsy Curse, we meet Tinka, the Gypsy Cat, who sets a curse on Astro and the gang. She evens tricks the cunning evil genius, Speed Bump Charlie.
Tinka is able to predict where the dogs are going to stage their next rescue mission. She then sends the dog catcher to capture them and he takes them to the Check Out! The one place all dogs fear!
But how does she know? Does she really have special powers or is it some kind of trick? Will our team realise that there is a spy amongst them? Will they be able to rescue Dingo and the other dogs from the Check Out before it’s too late? Will they be able to find the gypsy camp and stop Tinka before all the dogs are captured?!
In Astro’s Adventures, The Gypsy Curse, we meet again a tunnel digging terrier who carries a diamond encrusted nail file. A large dog for which the complexities of door handles are a complete mystery and who, instead, opens everything with his head. As well as, a commando, khaki wearing Blue heeler who is armed with a hunting bone and a smell grenade.
All are part of a team of dogs who work for a mysterious organisation. This organisation exists without detection and operates right under our very noses. Its sole purpose is to save dogs from neglect and to save each other too!
This is a funny book that will appeal to the young and old(er) at heart.
