Wallace faces skulduggery from a rival at a fishing competition. What sinister mystery lies behind Albert Plunger's amazing success with fish? And will Gromit and the newly invented Tubmarine have to save the day?...

Catch of the Day is a very simplistic 41-page comic (with additional pages introducing all your favourite characters) bound in hardback. Whether the asking price reflects the quality is questionable, but to be quite honest who cares. This is Wallace & Gromit we're talking about and they have been absent for so long that when you get a story worthy of the Wallace & Gromit seal of approval who cares what the RRP is?

Yes, the story is very simplistic (but then so have all of Aardman animation's short movies featuring the two cheese lovers) and the illustrations look like they've stepped straight out of The Beano (Hey! There's nothing wrong with that) but then this is a kid's book after all.

Albert Plunger is nowhere near as memorable as Feathers McGraw or Preston, but he makes a worthy addition to the Wallace & Gromit universe - even if an eight year old can tell that he is up to something from the first minute we see him.

Wallace & Gromit fans will not be disappointed.
