A crazy world domination conspiracy is uncovered and foiled by the most unlikely family on Earth in this highly entertaining and madcap adventure. The Crankshaws have finally hit rock bottom. The family are stony broke, their belongings have been snaffled by the bailiffs and their house, The Mill, is about to be re-possessed. And although Dad's Soviet fighter jet-propelled BBQ may well be the planet's most innovative solution to fast food (extra fast food), it is not the family's ticket out of financial doom and gloom. Not yet...So it is that fourteen-year-old Ace Crankshaw devises a secret money-making scheme of his own - the answer to all their problems, he thinks - a grandiose plan that will at last lift the Crankshaw's curse. He will enter and win the most sensational race the world has ever seen! Zircon's Great Space Race! With Barry (a monkey-toy robot) for technical support, Jake (his fart-brewing best mate) on rocket research duties and their arch-enemy, Zack Zircon, running the gig...what on Earth could possibly go wrong? This is a humorous and lighthearted madcap romp of a story and something completely different, but no less striking in its originality, to the fabulous "Guild Trilogy" series. It is highly-illustrated throughout in full colour including sketches and diagrams and picture essays which make this such a rich and rewarding read for kids.
