Comic-book action meets picture-book adventure in this exciting and funny new outing from beloved author Michael Rosen and illustrator Katharine McEwen.
Tune in as a father reads his children a bedtime story about the exploits of two villains, Filth and Vacuum, and their wicked plan to suck all the money out of the banks and cover everything with muck and slime.

His superpower is making people fall asleep — but will it work on the children listening to this story?
