Grubtown Tales: Splash, Crash and Loads of Cash Grubtown Tales

Written by Philip Ardagh

Grubtown Tales: Splash, Crash and Loads of Cash Grubtown Tales Synopsis

News just in from Beardy Ardagh: When a yachting trip turns to disaster and the shipwrecked crew, including Mango Claptrap, ends up using the impressively large Flabby Gomez as a man-made floating island, they need help. Who better to rescue them than the exceedingly useless lifeboat crew over at Limp, assisted by Grubtown's very own chief of police Grabby Hanson? But they have problems of their own. Can Jilly Cheeter save the day? And what about those hungry sharks . .? Praise for Grubtown Tales: 'Philip Ardagh has invented his own style of storytelling.' Michael Rosen, Children's Laureate 'Frenetic, high energy humour and more fun than cleaning the underside of a garden snail with your tongue.' Daily Mail on Grubtown Tales: Stinking Rich and Just Plain Stinky 'Lovers of the absurd and disgusting will delight in Ardagh's new series.' The Guardian on Grubtown Tales: Stinking Rich and Just Plain Stinky 'Philip Ardagh writes funny like he can't help it . . . Silly, silly, silly. Young readers will love them.' Independent on Sunday 'This hilarious book will have you splitting your sides with laughter and wanting to read more, more more!' Blue Peter Book Club on The Year that it Rained Cows
