A Donated USED Book - SEND A BOOK SCHEME
Book from THE GRUNTS CHILDREN’S SERIES -
The first in the hilarious series from Roald Dahl Funny Prize winning author Philip Ardagh and illustrator of The Gruffalo, Axel Scheffler.
Mr and Mrs Grunt, who are neither clean nor clever, live with their adopted in fact, abducted son, Sunny, in a donkey-drawn caravan somewhere or other at some time that is a bit like now but not exactly now. Sunny is an odd-looking boy, what with his left ear being higher than his right ear and that kind of sticky-up hair which NEVER goes flat, even if you massage glue into it and then jump on it. Together the unusual family find themselves in frankly improbable but very funny adventures involving bendy railings, double-barrelled shotguns, full-fat yoghurt and, always, a beard of bees.

Philip Ardagh is the author of The Grunts and National Trust: The Secret Diary series. He is probably best known for his Grubtown Tales, but he is author of over 100 books, including the Eddie Dickens Trilogy,
He is a “regular irregular” reviewer of children’s books for The Guardian, and is currently developing a series for television.
Philip is over six-and-a-half feet tall, with a ridiculously big, bushy beard and size sixteen feet, making him an instantly recognisable figure at literary festivals around the world.
He is quite serious, frowns a great deal and lives in a seaside town somewhere in England with his wife and their son, Fred.
“Highly eventful and effortlessly funny, it’s very ably illustrated by Gruffalo superstar Axel Scheffler, while Ardagh’s nimble-footed, rapid fire prose demonstrates a real intelligence – at the service, thankfully, of the delightfully disgusting and silly.” - Kids Confidential
Philip Ardargh is a national treasure - The Independent
“Philip Ardagh is a master storyteller and he narrates this tale with zest, irreverence and a keen sense of the absurd. Packed with jokes and characters as weird and wonderful as you could possibly hope for, this new series is destined to be adored by young readers.” - Booktrust
