Blacky the farting dog, back in his second adventure, has a mission that Marcus and Dylan can't refuse. Trouble is, this mission involves a monstrous saltwater crocodile who would much rather chomp on a human for dinner than have a civilized conversation. Of course, there's also the small matter of a giant big-game hunter on a collision course with our heroes. And will Marcus be any match for his mean older sister Rose and her lightsaber-wielding best friend Cy Ob Han? Blacky the master of disguise is back, full of attitude and smelly as ever.

Professional reviews

"Australian author Jonsberg packs a serious environmental message--that humans are responsible for messing up the world--into this hilarious story. In their second adventure, friends Markus and Dylan are spending the Christmas holiday in the Northern Territory of Australia. Blackie, the farting dog, orders the eco-warriors to help stop the senseless killing of salt-water crocodiles for sport. Narrator Stig Wemyss charges through this fast-paced story using a variety of voices that imbue each character with personality. Listeners will laugh at Markus's hilarious observations of his older sister, Rose, and her friend, Ci Ob Han (Siobhan). Thoroughly entertaining from start to finish. L.A.C.
