Funny, shocking, rude and anarchic stories, perfect for kids of 8+ who have that rebellious streak in them – that probably encapsulates every child then I guess! And now, for Grizzly Tales in stereo, you can get this one on audio CD if you click here. It is read by Rupert Degas. It’s brilliantly done.


Grizzly Tales: Gruesome Grown-ups by Jamie Rix

Grizzliness is out there. Every child has the makings of mischievousness, and can be lured into committing dastardly deeds. The six stories in each of the Grizzly Tales books show the rise and hard fall of vile and villainous children. In this book, parents and teachers are to blame for the murk and misery of the children's lives. Luckily, there are top tips for dealing with gruesome grown-ups - although no child is clever enough to defeat the Darkness completely ...We are completely reinventing the Grizzly Tales format for today's readers - ingenious concepts to link the separate stories, new format, design and illustrations, but still capturing Jamie Rix's legendary brilliant for creating stories that linger in the mind long after the lights go out at night!
