Crooks, Chooks & Bloody Ratbags [First Edition] (Ratbag Paperback Edition #1)
Author(s): Kerry Cue
The small country town of Kyneton in Victoria, Australia was slumbering peacefully on the day that Sergeant Meehan and his family drove into town, but their arrival heralded an outbreak of devastation that makes for hilarious reading.
Mrs Meehan inadvertently throwing live ammunition into a wood stove, the Sergeant attempting to execute magpies, and the boys getting into bulk strife with Shanghais, ferrets and rabbits are just some of the incidents related in this rib-tickling book.
You will read of the consternation of the Kynetonites who couldn't work out whether the Sergeant had come to keep the peace or to disturb it!
Few of the locals were left unscathed, and those who were, could read about the Meehan mayhem in the Kyneton Gaurdian now you can read it too.
