Sid, Peggy and Amy adore the two gerbils, Bubble and Squeak, but their mother detests them. A major family battle results, and it's clear life is never going to be quite the same again. But after a near fatal encounter between Bubble and Ginger the cat, Mrs Sparrow begins to see that life with 2 gerbils might not be so bad after all.
Bubble and Squeak are gerbils - and the battle is between the children (who adore them) and the children's mother who would do anything, yes anything, to get them out of the house. It is the illness of one of the gerbils. strangely, that alters her attitude. A Whitbread Award-winner.
