The Lovereading4Kids comment
Young children will love the chaos that ensues not just between the forever joking Roobarb, the green dog and the wacky pink cat, Custard but with the rest of their gang too. Whether or not your kids have met the irrepressible duo on TV or not, they'll find the big and bold illustrations draw them into what is always a somewhat off-the-wall storyline but it's guaranteed to be laugh-out-loud funny. Great for parents to read aloud with their children too. In When Custard was Grounded Custard thinks he's got the better of the gang and created a brilliant flying machine that will win the show but when the gang realise is really a bird in disguise Custard gets grounded.
It’s 35 years since the iconic duo first brightened our teatimes. Now at last, today’s kids can also follow the adventures of Roobarb, the ever-optimistic green dog whose inventions often go spectacularly wrong – much to the delight of Custard, the sarcastic pink cat. The gentle wit and charm of these new Roobarb stories will delight toddlers and parents.
When Roobarb decides to hold an air show, all his friends enter their model planes. It’s a jolly good show, but will Custard cheat his way to the deliciously tasty prize? Other Roobarb and Custard titles include When Roobarb found the Hieroglyphics and When there was a Pottery Party.
