Stinking Rich and Just Plain Stinky

Publisher: Faber & Faber

You won't find Grubtown on any maps. The last time any map-makers were sent anywhere near the place they were found a week later wearing nothing but pages from a telephone directory, and calling for their mothers. It's certainly a town and certainly grubby -- except for the squeaky clean parts -- but everything else we know about the place comes from Beardy Ardagh, town resident and author of these tales.

The hilariously bonkers inventions of former BookTrust Writer in Residence Philip Ardagh, were enough to impress the judges of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2009, seeing him win in the 7-14 category.
