9780141809113: Benny and Omar & Benny and Babe

A bumper audiobook containing two fantastic early works by Eoin Colfer.

Benny and Omar

In my old school, we had fighting, no pool and there'd be vicious matches against the other schools . . . I miss all that stuff!

Moving to Africa is the worst thing that has ever happened to Benny Shaw. No one plays hurling (the best game on the planet) and the local school is run by hippies who like to talk about feelings. As if.

But when Benny meets wisecracking Omar (the name's Bond, James Bond Omar) who only speaks English in TV catchphrases, he decides that maybe life in this new country can be fun after all . . .

Benny and Babe

Benny glowered at her. Babe by name, but most certainly not by nature.

A summer in the Irish countryside is not Benny Shaw's idea of a good time. Especially since the people of Duncade don't appreciate him as the sporting prodigy that he is. All he gets is teasing, which is a favourite pastime of annoying tomboy Babe Meara.

Streetwise Benny has met his match and he doesn't know the rules of this particular game. And when Babe turns from a real pain into a real girl, the trouble well and truly begins.
