When Luke (10) and Michael Kingsman (6) got involved in a messy but hilarious ketchup fight in their garden, nobody could foresee the adventure it would lead them into. As a result of the ketchup fight, Luke's best friend Whizzo starts inventing and creates a number of ketchup-firing weapons that the children plan to use in a series of friendly fights. With their newly created weapons, the children want a name for their gang and become the Ketchup Kids. During their first battle, the children discover a burglar's kit in the woods and make a momentous decision - to become crime-busting heroes and solve the mystery themselves. The discovery catapults the gang into a thrilling adventure of a lifetime, involving lots of sticky red stuff and some mean and malevolent burglars who are out to catch the children. Will the Ketchup Kids apprehend the burglars - or have they gone a step too far into an adventure that should have been dealt with by grown ups? Prepare to get messy with The Ketchup Kids, a charming, light-hearted and humourous adventure story for 7-10 year old children. Beautifully illustrated, Andrew Burton's tale gives the reader a story that could easily happen in real life. Reminiscent of The Famous Five and The Secret Seven, the book revives a long-forgotten and highly entertaining story format.
