The Boolachecks rule the town and the Muldoons are their henchmen. That is the way it has been for several generations. Nobody has ever taken a stand or even bothered to challenge the order of things until Elliot Blue moves to town and shortly after ...
comes cousin Jimmy ‘the slick’.
Elliot Blue is the typical ‘picked on’ kid with a penchant for self-preservation. He’s the one that most can identify with, the smart one who runs, hides and hopes that the bullies won’t come looking for him in the chess club, school band or washroom. Jimmy ‘the slick’ Blue, on the other hand, is the extroverted smart guy who doesn’t look for trouble but when it finds him he’s pretty quick to come up with ingenious ways of dealing with it. In essence he’s the one that all bullied kids wish they could be or at least have a friend like him.
Geared for the reluctant and inquisitive reader, between 9-12, Big Bobby Boom! and the Marble Mayhem depicts how life can be a nightmare for some and a great opportunity for others..
“Sometimes, being an undersized brainy kid can really stink. No one knows this better than eleven year old Elliot Blue who finds himself thrust into a new school, in a new town where just within the first few days he has managed to make himself a target of the self proclaimed school bully ‘Big Bobby Boolacheck (Big Bobby Boom!) and hench-boys Booker and Biff Muldoon. Elliot’s life is going from bad to worse.
Luckily for Elliot, a cousin from the big city is coming to live with them for awhile. Soon enough the perfectly ordered town of Bunsel, that had been terrorized by the Boolachecks would experience something it had never encountered before. A triple threat with a backbone, a warped sense of humour and a genius mind . . . meet eleven year old super prankster Jimmy ‘the slick’ Blue.”
Together the soon to be infamous duo of Prankster and Brainiac are about to bring whole new brand of justice to the mean streets and playgrounds of Bunsel and go head to head with the nasty trio of Big Bobby Boom! and hench boys Booker and Biff.
Big Bobby Boom! and the Marble Mayhem is an easy to read fun-filled page turner for anyone who likes birthday party crashing, hockey hi-jinx, baseball bloopers and watching a bully unwittingly eat a hot pepper pie.
