Of Course It’s Butterfingers!
Bang! Thump! Crash! Who's the wizard of the woeful, the foremost lord of the foul-up, the bumbling baron of blunders? Of course it's Butterfingers!
Even when Amar Kishen-better known as Butterfingers-isn't stumbling through misadventures, he sure has disaster tailing him every step of the way.
And now that he's back, his 'brilliant' ideas land him in trouble (as usual), whether it's messing around with an Egyptian mummy, playing cricket with an all-girls team, dropping a watch in a swimming pool or saving a rock star's life!
Join the irrepressible Butterfingers in this exciting new instalment of side-splitting short stories.
