5+. Delight in the disgusting in this hilarious story of what happens when Neville gets yanked down the toilet to the land of Under. Of course it is dirty! And disgusting! Neville ends up as part of the Bulch family, trolls whose idea of a good time includes feasts of rat patties and ear-wax brownies. But Under is also a place of new friendships and Neville quickly adapts to his unusual surroundings!

And now there's a sequel - click here.

One night, Neville Brisket wakes up from a strange dream - a dream that there is a horrible, stumpy finger stuck up his nose. Then he finds his room in a mess, and his dog in the laundry basket. Neville's investigations end sposhily, when he is whooshed down the toilet to the land of Under! In a case of mistaken troll-dentity, he finds himself part of a disgusting new family. Will anybody help Neville get back to Over, or will he be stuck eating rat patties and left sock stew forever? This hilariously delivered tale will delight and disgust parents and children alike.
