Synopsis

Splash, Crash and Loads of Cash Grubtown Tales by Philip Ardagh

News just in from Beardy Ardagh: When a yachting trip turns to disaster and the shipwrecked crew, including Mango Claptrap, ends up using the impressively large Flabby Gomez as a man-made floating island, they need help. Who better to rescue them than the exceedingly useless lifeboat crew over at Limp, assisted by Grubtown's very own chief of police Grabby Hanson? But they have problems of their own. Can Jilly Cheeter save the day? And what about those hungry sharks? Praise for Grubtown Tales : 'Philip Ardagh has invented his own style of storytelling' - Michael Rosen, Children's Laureate. 'Frenetic, high energy humour and more fun than cleaning the underside of a garden snail with your tongue' - Daily Mail on Grubtown Tales: Stinking Rich and Just Plain Stinky . 'Lovers of the absurd and disgusting will delight in Ardagh's new series' - The Guardian on Grubtown Tales: Stinking Rich and Just Plain Stinky . 'Philip Ardagh writes funny like he can't help it ...Silly, silly, silly. Young readers will love them' - Independent on Sunday . 'This hilarious book will have you splitting your sides with laughter and wanting to read more, more, and more!' - Blue Peter Book Club on The Year that it Rained Cows .

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!
