Uncle Gobb and the Green Heads by Michael Rosen

The second uproarious adventure from the comic pairing of Michael Rosen and Neal Layton sees Malcolm and the peculiar Uncle Gobb go to America, each with a cunning plan ...Even though Malcolm managed to bamboozle and confuzle Uncle Gobb in the last book (hooray!), it was only temporary (boo!). Uncle Gobb is still living with him and still roaring at him about peas and poetry and Peter Parker. This time the plan to get rid of Uncle Gobb has to be mega. It has to be epic. It has to involve America, the Jumblies, the Genie (of course), Aunty Brenda the Mender and Malcolm's long-lost dad. But Malcolm doesn't know that Uncle Gobb also has a plan. A plan to get rid of Malcolm once and for all ...A bonkers book about standing up for yourself, from two crazily creative people. Sure to delight fans of David Walliams, Andy Stanton and Tom Gates.


Rosen ... doesn't just do funny ... he is funny ... Rosen is the real deal. Children's Book of the Week, Sunday Times on UNCLE GOBB AND THE DREAD SHED Ramshackle and silly in the best possible way.

Bookseller on UNCLE GOBB AND THE DREAD SHED Reassuring and entertaining, we'd expect nothing less from this industry treasure.
