Artie and the Grime Wave

Richard Roxburgh

Artie and his best friend Bumshoe have stumbled upon a Cave-of-Possibly-Stolen-Stuff, and along with it a gang of shady characters including scary Mary, fang-toothed Funnel-web and the devious Mayor Grime.

Artie and Bumshoe’s attempt to solve the mystery sparks a chaotic chain of events that involves kidnapping, puppy-dog cutlets, modern art and pioneering the sport of the bungee- wedgie.

It’s a sticky situation and if Artie’s going to escape, he might need help from family, friends, a little old lady, a small dog and the Fartex 120Y.

A riotously funny adventure from the multi-talented Richard Roxburgh.


Well-loved Australian actor Richard Roxburgh’s first children’s book is a completely unhinged adventure and a celebration of friendship. Artie and his friend Bumshoe discover evidence of dodgy criminal behaviour happening in their town and are soon caught up in a whole lot of madcap danger among a cast of absurd, cartoonish baddies. The two friends are used to dealing with bullies, but taking on the villains who have been on a thieving spree in Grime and rescuing the town’s pets certainly requires some extraordinary efforts, industrious thinking and a very painful wedgie.

Lively illustrations and plenty of dark and extremely gross humour will certainly make this a very good choice for readers who have been loving David Walliams’ books.
