The Grunts In Trouble

Publisher: Nosy Crow

The Grunts are a deliciously disgusting duo. They live in a caravan made from the remains of an ice-cream truck, and old coffee machine and a garden shed. Sunny, their long-suffering son, does his best to keep the pair on the road and out of trouble. He has his work cut out for him when the family come across Bigg Manor and meet the home’s unpleasant owner Mr Bigg. Add to this a band of mutinous servants, a gang of vengeful circus performers, an elephant named Fingers and lots of bees, and poor Sunny is about to become embroiled in an adventure sillier, scarier and smellier than he had ever imagined.

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.
