Winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize for the hilarious adventures in Grubtown, Philip Ardagh, or Beardy Ardagh as his fans know him, has added a fifth title to the series. Life in Grubtown continues on its crazy way. The mayor has just finished knitting his own home and declares a celebration for its opening.

Grubtown Tales: Trick Eggs and Rubber Chickens by Philip Ardagh
If Beardy Ardagh is to be believed, things all start going on the bonkers side of very wrong when Mayor Flabby Gomez finally finishes knitting his new home and declares a public holiday in Grubtown for its official opening. There will be free ice-cream and entertainment...only there's been a mix-up at the suppliers and the wrong costumes and props have arrived. And, if that weren't bad enough, there's the matter of a serious leak at Grubtown's new aquarium.
