The Gruesome General

by Jozua Douglas

Welcome to Costa Banana, a tropical island where the President thinks he’s a pop star and insists all citizens eat banana soup on Fridays. He’s strong, he’s unstoppable, he’s . . .


So when the President’s kids discover a plot to overthrow their dad, of course he doesn’t believe them. With robotic spy flies, banana guns and a gruesome general to dodge, will Rosa and Fico be able to save the day?
