'You had it all: fame, fortune, a 400-inch waist and now you want to blow up our city?'

A bus loaded with raccoons and dynamite is hurtling through space on a direct course for the city of Sucktropolis.  As the Seriously Useless Crime Stoppers (SUCS) shake off their old identities and take on fabulously useless new powers, they are forced to confront their largest enemy yet: Sumo Granny.  She's the size of eight adult polar bears, and there's revenge in her heart.
Will the SUCS be as useless as they were last time?
Will Sucktropolis survive this latest threat?

About the author (2011)

Dave Hackettis the kind of guy who likes to draw sumo-wrestling grannies and guitar-wielding punk snails. His cartoons can be seen in newspapers, magazines, books, on posters, T-shirts and the sides of vans and garbage trucks throughout the nation.

You can catch Dave regularly scribbling on Network Ten's Toasted Tv, Channel 7's It's Academic, and in each issue of PETSMagazine.

Recently, Dave branched into literature with his debut novel, UFO; Unavoidable Family Outing, which he followed with UFO in the USA and UFO Afloat. The first book in his new SUCS- Seriously Useless Crime Stoppers series, Unstoppable Brainspin, was published in August 2010. Dave is the author of six interactive cartooning books, and two picture books, including his most recent release Hamilton's Handstand. You should check out all Dave's books.

Dave, along with his wife and children recently moved from the Blue Mountains of New South Wales to Eumundi, Queensland, where they now own lots of fruit trees, a tiny horse, some chickens and a grey cat that won't stop peeing on things.
