Monkey Nuts Book 1: The Diamond Egg of Wonders
Cut to Chump Town on the Isla de Monstera, home of Sid, a tap-dancing monkey in need of work, a coffee vending machine called Rivet and Chief Tuft, a talking coconut in charge of the island's Serious Crime Squad. When evil magician The Amazing Amazing is irresistibly attracted to the island and destroys police headquarters, it is left to Sid and Rivet to perform some magic of their own and defeat the trickster, convincing Chief Tuft that they should set up their own crime fighting unit, Monkey Nuts.
After a series of wacky battles against some equally bizarre villains (a pirate cowboy with a giant robot horse, a demented temple, the Great Escape Gang and others) our dynamic duo finally find themselves face to jowl with the mastermind behind all their problems.
