A fabulously funny madcap adventure from the multi-talented actor, director and writer Richard Roxburgh, now writing and illustrating books for children.

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 he might need help from family, friends, a little old lady, a small dog and the Fartex 120Y.

A fabulously funny, madcap adventure from the multi-talented Richard Roxburgh.

    Comments about Artie and the Grime Wave:

    Last year (2016), i judged books by their cover and not by what was inside them. This book i find is just really great and an easy read. It consists of great descriptions about the surroundings and people. This way you can really understand and get a mental picture of everything that is going on.
