It’s summer in Sherwood Heights, and that means a ninja stealth picnic, supervillain jail, and a zombie apocalypse. The Dudes are five friends who set out to save one of their number from the doom of private school. But code-names, battle training, and a campout of doom don’t help as much as you’d think they would.

Besides that, the girl next door has a teacup-sized pit bull, Tyler’s mom has banned “screen time”, and there’s the rising cost of fake blood. Can the Dudes use inadvisable stunts and madcap plans to save the day? That’s how they roll!

Fun on an epic scale for your kids!

The Dudes Adventure Chronicles is a series for intermediate readers 8-14 who can’t get enough madcap adventure and hilarious hijinks. The Dudes are a diverse group of preteen boys whose clever ways to screw up turn their suburban neighborhood upside down. Each audiobook provides several wacky but realistic adventures. And terrific voice actor, Mark Sanderlin, delivers the funny for the whole family!

Praise for Save the Dudes:

"…the story is given depth by emotional challenges each friend must face, described with subtlety.

"Readers will likely be eager to read the next adventure.

"Hilarious comic mayhem, rounded out by affection and insight." --Kirkus Reviews

Spoilers: Classic humor without movie tie-ins or fart jokes! Appeals to middle grade readers who like funny, realistic fiction without a tacked-on message or ripped-from-the-headlines problem.

Warning to Parents: The Dudes’s take on parents, school, and the PTA just might be catching. Anecdotal evidence suggests that readers of the Dudes may imagine some resemblance between the Dudes’ parents and their own.

Mark Sanderlin brings these fun friends to life. Take some time for laughs today!
