Uncle Shawn and Bill and the Almost Entirely Unplanned Adventure

Shortlisted for the 2018 Scholastic Lollies Awards.

HELP! Badger Bill needs rescuing. He’s been kidnapped by two nasty sisters who want to make him fight a boxing match against three savage dogs. DOUBLE HELP! The four most depressed llamas in the history of llamas need rescuing too. They’re about to be turned into llama pies. Uh-oh! But never fear – Uncle Shawn is here! He just loves helping. Plus, he has a special rescuing plan which involves dancing, and a mole, and an electric fence. What could possibly go wrong? Or, more like – what could possibly go right?
