Speedy Simpson is the best at everything at Oompha Primary School, at least he is until Bebe LaMouche arrives in town. Bebe can swear better than anyone the children have ever heard. And what's more, she always manages to get away with it. Desperate to outdo her, Speedy sets about finding himself the perfect swear word. When he does, he rolls it around in his mouth and his head until, finally having perfected it, Speedy can contain it no more and the word takes on a life of its own!
A funny adventure story from the author of the 2008 CBCA Notable Book, Star of the Circus.
