Meet our hero Ben Pole: he's on the run from Monty Grabbe when he discovers a forest with rope swings, water slides, a wombat called Herbert and best of all KING COO! But watch out - Cow-pat-a-pults to the ready! Monty and his gang have a dastardly plan and Ben and Coo need to come up with their best invention yet . . .



Even though I've read it before, I still enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed this book. My favourite character was King Coo and was very surprised when it turned out King was actually a girl. I would definitely recommend this book.

King Coo is really a girl! And her beard isn't a real beard! I think it might be her hair, or wombat hair

A very funny book, I especially liked the Wombatifier!

I liked it because you don’t know what is going to happen next - there were lots of surprises. I though King Coo was a boy but she was a girl.
