Synopsis

Roobarb and Custard When Roobarb's Trousers Flew by Grange Calveley

Now in print - the UK's coolest cartoon duo! Roobarb decides to get rid of the lumps and bumps in the garden, so he invents some trousers that help him hover. Will his trousers take off - or will it all end in tears? It's 35 years since the iconic duo first brightened our teatimes. Now today's kids can follow the adventures of Roobarb, the optimistic green dog whose inventions often go spectacularly wrong - much to the delight of Custard, the sarcastic pink cat. The gentle wit and charm of these new Roobarb stories will feel instantly familiar.

Reviews

It's guaranteed to be laugh-out-loud funny. Great for parents to read aloud with their children too. -- Julia Eccleshare Lovereading

About the Author

Roobarb was created and drawn by Grange Calveley in 1973.

Grange was inspired to create Roobarb by the antics of his own Welsh Border Collie dog. “When our four legged Welsh friend moved in, the first thing that he did was water the rhubarb and from that moment on, we called him Roobarb”.

The BBC commissioned an animated series in 1973, which at the time was the first production of its kind in the UK. Created and written by Grange Calveley, animated by Bob Godfrey and voiced by Richard Briers, it was an immediate success, drawing over 7 million viewers in its first three weeks.

BBC Merchandising issued a number of licenses, most notably to Cadbury for a chocolate bar, and a Roobarb song, which reached number 3 in the charts, was also produced.

Publishers Mogzilla have adapted Grange’s original scripts into a series of colourful books. For the very first time, readers can follow the iconic duo through 32 pages of full colour adventures.
