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 Roobarb found the Hieroglyphics Custard gets somewhat more than he bargained for when he decides to go treasure hunting in his garden and his friend mole definitely has something to do with the treasure he's finding!
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 discovers gold under his garden shed, he decides to become a treasure-hunter, with a little help from Mole. But will Roobarb dig up a bigger surprise than he bargained for? Other Roobarb and Custard titles include When Custard was Grounded and When there was a Pottery Party.
