This is a straight rendering of the movie, no embellishments, but I love the story. The characters are one-of-a-kind, I wish I could meet them and be worthy of their friendship. I would really love to have the comics from the end. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553494228, Paperback)

Are Walter’s “uncles” really ex-bank robbers? He’s about to spend a summer with them and find out!

Poor Walter! His mom, Mae, an irresponsible beauty past her prime and down on her luck, has dumped him off with his two eccentric old “uncles,” Hub and Garth. Mae’s convinced that the old men have millions stashed away from bank robberies—and she’s determined that she and Walter deserve a piece of the pie. So while Mae’s off trying to find a husband, Walter tries to make himself at home in the company of these older, grumpier men—and some other relatives that are equally determined to get their share of the family assets.

Soon Walter is transfixed and transformed by the stories Garth tells of his and Hub’s dashing younger years: how they were in the French Foreign Legion and how Hub won the love of the Sultan’s daughter and evaded the jealous Sheik’s assassins. Are Hub and Garth sitting on a fortune, or is that a story too? And who’s going to get it if they are?

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:12:15 -0400)

To the rest of the world, Garth and Hub are mysterious old men hiding millions. But to Walter, they are family - and now they're about to lead him on an adventure he'll never forget.
