The Lovereading4Kids comment
Brilliant time-travelling adventures. Toby is magiced back to Tudor London, into John Bunn’s life, and finds himself mucking about as animal keeper to the King.
Readers of Horrid Henry and the Horrible Histories will love it and in addition we think that even the most reluctant of readers, particularly boys will really relate to Toby and his historical exploits.
The titles in the series so far and in order are Keeping Sneaky Secrets, Dodging the Donkey Doo, Sludging Through the Sewers, Mucking about with Monkeys, Picking People’s Pockets and Hogging all the Pig Swill.
Toby Tucker: Mucking about with Monkeys by Valerie Wilding
This time Toby is magicked back to Tudor London, into John Bunn’s life, and finds himself mucking out and mucking about as animal keeper to the king:
‘I hate Scrope, Nellie. I like working with the beasts, but I do not want to work for that man any more. But who would give a job to a dung boy?’
She smiled and said that when she does want someone, she will think of me. I said, ‘I can be found at the Tower, my lady, in the king’s menagerie.’
‘I know!’ she said. Everyone laughed. They all know where I come from because I smell of lion and dung. I did not laugh.
