When the Emerald Cactus in the Desert of Doom explodes, Budsville is covered in sparkling green sand ...

Soon the evil Desert Elves will arrive on their Scorpion Chariots. How can Alfie stop them?

A very special lawnmower hidden in a secret subway under Grandad’s shed might do the trick – and it might help Alfie and Fitzer in the go-kart race, too!

Joe O'Brien

Joe O'Brien lives in Ballyfermot in Dublin with his wife and children. He is the author of nine books featuring Alfie Green, a boy who can talk to plants. For older readers he has written three books about Danny Wilde and his Littlestown Crokes GAA team, Legends' Lair (about Charlie Stubbs and his dreams of becoming a soccer player) and one fantasy novel, Beyond the Cherry Tree. He has appeared on RTE's The Den, TV3's Ireland AM and many radio shows. He regularly holds readings in bookshops and libraries around the country.

 

'The Story rattles along at a great pace and offers an ideal read for boys aged 6 to 8.' ****

RTE Guide RTE Guide

'A charming hero is Joe O’Brien’s Alfie Green, a little boy who has wild adventures of the plant variety. The Supersonic Subway is a lovely story that features exploding cacti and a magic lawnmower.'

The Sunday Independent Sunday Independent

'O’Brien’s characteristic mix of adventure, humour and celebration of the natural environment, together with Texier’s complementary black and white drawings, should particularly appeal to boys of between 6 and 8, and to reluctant readers of up to 10.'

Inis Magazine Inis Magazine

'Excitement is enhanced by the black and white illustrations. Readers will hang on every word'
