In this fun children's book, Rampaging Rats, Melbourne City Airport is being destroyed by monster rats. People think dogs are responsible so Astro and our valiant team not only have to destroy the rats, but they also have to find out who created these terrible creatures and clear the name of The Organisation.If they don't the strong bond that exists between people and dogs may be ruined for all time and we won't find out how Indy stopped a dog-eating crocodile or why there's a dog that thinks his name is Stop It!Follow the team as they travel around Australia and help rebuild the special bond that exists between dogs and their owners.If you and your family love dogs you are going to love this fun children's story. The characters are all based on real dogs and cats and, just like your pet at home, they will warm your heart. They are unique and a bit flawed but you'll love them all the same.The story is about a mysterious organisation that exists without detection and operates right under our very noses. Its sole purpose is to save dogs from neglect. This is the third book in the Astro Adventure's series and it will delight and entertain your family with its fast moving plots and funny storylines.This tale of spies and mystery is full of twists and turns. The secret organisation is manned by a tunnel digging terrier who carries a diamond encrusted nail file. A large dog for which the complexities of door handles are a complete mystery and who, instead, opens everything with his head. As well as, a commando, khaki wearing Blue heeler who is armed with a hunting bone and a smell grenade. And that's just to name a few!Reviews:"With an all-dog cast, this amusing story grabbed me right away. The dogs of the Organisation are on a special mission to destroy an infestation of mechanical rats. Though written for kids ages 7 and up (in my opinion), the story is not overly cute. It is a serious mission these dogs are on, and they don't take it lightly. The plot is easy enough for a child to follow, but also a fun read for grownups, making it a perfect book to enjoy together..." Purple Violin"...Your children will love this book. I understand that all the characters are based on real dogs and cats even the evil genius, Speed Bump Charlie. I highly recommend it..." Haim Ziv
