There are jokes galore in this sequel to the hilarious The Wrong Pong as Neville gets a visit from the Bulches, his Troll hosts on his visit to the Underneath. Looking for a fun time, the Bulches are on holiday but, with their far from clean habits and delight in ear-wax brownies, Neville cannot see how they will fit in with mother, let alone his super-clean grandmother ...The results are hilarious – and far more harmonious by the end than might have been expected.
Hullo, My Brandyburp! Neville's Grandma Joan is the grumpiest, most horrible old woman there's ever been. He'd rather eat left-sock stew than see her, and now she's coming to stay for a whole weekend. Oh dungle droppings! Even worse, a whole family of stinky, swampy trolls will be visiting Neville at the same time! Can Neville hide his friends from nosy Grandma Joan or will she get the fright of her life?
