The Lovereading4Kids comment

The proud ruler of a vast pickling empire, Granny Hogsflesh hides some strange-smelling secrets. Everything in her mansion stinks of vinegar and is a hideous shade of purple – including Granny herself. When Barnaby is forced to go and live with Granny after his father’s mysterious disappearance, he quickly realises there’s more to her pickling kingdom than meets the eye. Is she behind what happened to his dad, who, burping and slurping, vanished into the night? Or are some wicked bog-monsters to blame? Soon Barney must infiltrate the disgusting worlds of pickles and monsters to save his family from a sticky ending…
