Author and illustrator Berran had been to school in past years and left signed copies. Covers very bright and appealing so thought I would read for Junior school boys. Sam's family have relocated to the town of Agnath in the middle of the Australian outback. There are cows, trees, sand and piles of red dirt and old mines and no much else so Sam is bored out of his brain until another new kid called Jared moves in to town. Together Sam and Jared get up to all sorts of naughty and gross adventures.
It will appeal to Grade 5 and immature Year 8s. The text is interspersed with changes in font to provide emphasis and illustrations. Sam has an annoying baby sister called Yelly/Smelly/Jelly Melly and his mother has a Pomeranian dog that Sam refers to as Fluff Butt - both of which seem to just be poop machines.

This is the 2nd book in the series and the shortest. In it, Sam clears the gunk between his toes and saves it in a box under his bed. It turns into a monster that reattaches itself to his feet. Sam and Jared try to get to the bottom of this by spying on the only successful farmer in the district - he sells bags of amazing manure to gardening companies. The boys notice that his cows seem super skinny though and not capable to producing any cow poo. They also see that there is some resemblance to the toe-jammed monster in old photos of the farm and sneak in to find out what is going on.

This book is just basically one big poop joke but it had a bit more of a plot than the first one. The ideas were good but the editing was, once again, poor and should have been tidied up to make it better. (I think this is a self published book.) ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Up for another hilariously gross adventure? Then read on... Sam and his best mate, Jared, are off on another Freaky adventure. Sam's been hard at work all summer trying to build up the world's largest, smelliest, grossest ball of toe jam from all of the cow poop, slug slime and sweat that's living between his toes. But when he uses Smelly Melly's toothbrush to try and dig out the huge dob of mouldy, smelly muck, well, let's just say... it's not too happy about the move. Watch out for the next exciting book in this Freaky series - Lick'd. You'll wish you were there to join the boys!… (more)
