Intro: Borribles are generally skinny and have pointed ears which give them a slightly satanic appearance. They are pretty tough-looking and always scruffy, with their arises hanging out of their trousers. Apart from that they look just like normal children
Summary: The Borribles of Battlesea discover a Rumble tunneling inside of Battersea. Now, for clarification a Rumble is really just another type of Borrible but with two distinct differences: 1) They are from Rumbleton and 2) they prefer to live in burrows instead of old boroughs.
Skiff the commander of the Battersea Borribles takes the trespass of the Rumble and uses that as an excuse to invade the main burrow in Rumbleton as a preemptive attack instead of waiting to be attacked. In reality Spiff is wanting to steal a great treasure that is hidden in the Rumleton's commanders living quarters.
8 Borribles are chosen to go on this adventure. One additional is included to be the "historian" but in reality is secret mission is to steal the treasure box. 9 take out on this misfit adventure and the meet a german Borrible along the way.
Such a wonderful tale that I do not want to go into further details for fear of ruining this simple and easy read.
If you like adventure and a quick easy read then this is the book for you.
