The Crazy Crumpet Kerfuffle by Jo Simmons


The Crazy Crumpet Kerfuffle by Jo Simmons

Welcome to Pip Street! The very ordinary place where extraordinary things happen. Full of quirky black-and-white illustrations throughout, as well as fun activity sheets at the back. Can crumpets be cool? When Bobby's dad becomes the manager of the local crumpet factory, Bobby thinks his moving worries are at last over. He likes it here on Pip Street, especially now he has found a new best friend in fizzy Imelda from next door. Except crumpets are boring! And no one is buying them. Unless someone (and I bet it'll have to be Bobby) comes up with a fantabulous plan to make crumpets more interesting, Bobby's dad might lose his job and that means ...uh-oh ...moving again. And who's that even newer boy across the street acting like he's better than everyone else, and making eyes at Imelda and trying to be her best friend instead? Looks like there's a crumpety calamity on Pip Street! Keep your eyes peeled for more PIP STREET adventures: A WHISKERY MYSTERY (9781407132815) Utterly charming and delightful Mel Giedroyc
