Maxx Rumble Cricket 1: Rattled!

By Michael Wagner
Illustrated by Terry Denton

Maxx Rumble’s sporting adventures are absolutely incredible – to say the least! You will hardly believe what goes on during a thrilling, and sometimes bizarre, season of cricket.

“How is THAT, umpire?” screamed Happy. “That’s gotta be out! Oh, come on, ump! Be reasonable. He was SOOOO out! What are you doing to be, ump?” “You haven’t even bowled the ball yet, Happy,” said umpire Freddy. Can Maxx survive the pressure of facing Happy Mackay? Or will the Saints start the season with a shock loss?
