A funny, historical novel that is virtually all dialogue, by Caldecott Honor-winner Avi. It's the spring of 1945 in Brooklyn, and Frankie and Mario--inspired by the heroics of the Lone Ranger, the Green Hornet, and the Shadow, among others--set out to right the wrongs of their world. And no one can escape being part of their hilarious adventures.
