The bad news? The world is ending. The good news? The Bad Guys are back to save it! Sure, they might have to ‘borrow’ a rocket...And there might be something nasty in one of the spacesuits...And Mr Piranha might have eaten too many bean burritos...But seriously, how BAD can it be? How bad?! SUPER BAD. It’s one small step for the Sort-Of-International-League-Of-Good-Guys-Guys. It’s one giant leap for The Bad Guys.

(synopsis from Goodreads)

This installment sees the Bad Guys on the moon, trying to stop Dr. Marmalade's evil plans. There's quite a bit of fart humour in this one (as if you didn't see that coming, with all the talk of bean burritos), but I found it pretty entertaining. There's some nice character development with Mr. Snake, as well. And, of course, there's a cliffhanger ending. I guess we're going to be dealing with aliens next.

Will the Bad Guys prevail? I guess I'll just have to keep reading to find out.
