This fictional tale is as interesting and humorous as its title. Niles and Matthew are BFF's (best friends forever) with extraordinary cleverness that seems to get them into big trouble. Without enough allowance money to buy their favorite trading card, they must devise a way to get it...fast! Hold onto the edge of your seats as their devious plan unravels right before their faces.
They got behind a boy and a girl who stood excitedly looking at a man standing behind a table selling trading cards.
“Mister, can I see that SpacemanXZ card?” asked Matthew. “Sure son. Here you go.” The tall, rugged man holding the messenger bag gladly extended his arm and gave Matthew the card to hold.
“Matthew! That’s the most powerful card! No one in our class has that one!” screamed Niles with enthusiasm.
Matthew’s eyes widened with equal excitement.
