When Bunnies Turn Bad by Philip Ardagh
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

The prize-winning Grubtown series is back with a new ludicrous adventure which shows exactly why its predecessor won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. This time Bunny Rabbits – far too many of them – paper aeroplanes and the Sun-Ripe Raisin Man are all involved in a delightfully daft but utterly absorbing story in a place where you can expect only the most unusual things to happen – and they do!

Synopsis

When Bunnies Turn Bad by Philip Ardagh

If Beardy Ardagh is to be believed, the trouble begins when a monkey escapes from the grubtown old folks home, or when the sun-ripe raisin man decides to give up shrivelled dried grapes and to grow vegetables instead. Whatever the beginning, it all ends up with far too many bunny rabbits and a serious problem with paper aeroplanes. Philip Ardagh shows just what it is that would make any sane-minded person avoid visiting Grubtown for business or pleasure at all costs, and excactly why fun-loving readers (of all ages) should head straight for a shelf of Grubtown Tales.
