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.

Philip Ardagh, whose very first Grubtown Tale won him the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, is author of numerous books including the award-winning Eddie Dickens adventures, which have been translated into over 30 languages.

He wrote BBC Radio’s first truly interactive radio drama, collaborated with Sir Paul McCartney on his first children’s book and is a ‘regularly irregular’ reviewer of children’s books for the Guardian.
