Mr Gaskitt does a strange thing one day; he puts on all his clothes right on top of each other. Going out dressed like that makes Mr Gaskitt look very different and it's lucky that he does when he meets a robber and has to be very brave! An exciting and easy to read story that is full of surprises.
One morning Mr Gaskitt puts on all his clothes, Mrs Gaskitt picks up a robber in her taxi, Gus & Gloria have trouble with a teacher, Horace the cat goes to a friend's house to watch TV and the car radio gets things wrong. What happens next is an action-packed, farcical romp that interweaves all the different plots, and ends in a thrilling car chase with Mr Gaskitt saving the day!
The Gaskitt stories are:
