In this humorous and inventive, adventure story, Harry is an optimistic 11 yr-old child who always tries to help. his ideas however, seem a bit crazy to others, hence the nickname, Daft Harry. Harry lives on a Lincolnshire farm with Lou, his older, tomboy sister, who has a spiteful side and so often encourages Harry's ideas just to witness the generally disastrous outcomes. Harry is impressed by his dad's inventive streak (his favourite is a giant sucker /blower machine for moving bulk grain around in old barns). Emulating his father, Harry starts to come up with his own innovative ideas.....For example, borrowing his mum's hoover to suck out a live wasp's nest and later, using the new VAX machine to suck goldfish from their bowl (when asked to change the water). At School, Harry is in trouble after starting `Sauce wars` in the dining hall when new squeezy sauce bottles are introduced. Out exploring the farm, the siblings and their friends come across two escaped jewel thieves. The brigands throw them into an old lime pit in the woods, but Harry and Lou manage to escape through a tunnel after Harry remembers details from his school history project. Now, can they catch the villains with the help of some of Harry and Lou's craziest ideas? During their adventures, the sibling's opinion of the initially, much-hated tiger striped goons (wasps), changes as they see the good side of the stinging insects. They also learn that coming up with inventive ideas, however bonkers they might seem, ROCKS!
