Author(s): Finbar O'Connor
Inspector Plonker is once more on the trail of his old enemy, Wolfgran, but this time he's going undercover. Disguised in a pantomime wolf suit, can the Inspector and his faithful sidekick Sergeant Snoop escape being throttled by Granny Riding Hood's nephew, blasted by the Chief of Police, hand-bagged by a bus queue full of very cranky old ladies and run over by the terrifying vets from TV's 'Pet Patrol'? And will they manage to stop the Big Bad Wolf before he gets to the Grand Gala Bingo Night and finally makes a meal of Little Red Riding Hood?
'A clever mix of nursery rhyme characters and whacky imagination, Mr O'Connor has devised a clever sequel in the delightful Wolfgran series. As the title suggests, Wolfgran has returned to pursue his quest to gobble up Little Red Riding Hood - while pursued by Inspector Plonker and his sidekick, Sergeant Snoop. Packed with little old ladies and inept adults, this book is a hilarious romp.' -- Teresa Doran - Books Ireland Books Ireland
