Two stories included in this volume. Takes a little getting used to the London cockney/slang accent in the writing, but fortunately a glossary can be found at the back of the book. Two hilarious capers with very colourful characters makes this an extremely enjoyable read.

Benny was a stocky, dark-haired boy of eleven. When you saw Benny at first, you took him for an ordinary boy. When you'd known him for half an hour, you were convinced he was a genius. When you'd known him for a day, you suspected he was the Devil, but by then it was too late: you were drawn in. Everyone who knew Benny was drawn in, because he was less like a boy than a whirlpool. The New Cut Gang were proud to follow him.
