Book Description

7 May 2009

You won't find Grubtown on any maps. The last time any map-makers were sent anywhere near the place they were found a week later wearing nothing but pages from a telephone directory, and calling for their mothers. It's certainly a town and certainly grubby -- except for the squeaky clean parts -- but everything else we know about the place comes from Beardy Ardagh, town resident and author of these tales.

Grubtown is full of oddballs -- from the singing Grumbly girls to a family of duck-haters, and an out-sized mayor who's knitting a new house -- but Manual Org is too repulsive even for them. Getting him to leave town is top priority, until the discovery of a humongous diamond changes everything...

4.0 out of 5 stars Monty Python not Mr Gum 19 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
We found this amusing and entertaining. Philip Ardagh's sense of humour is very silly and appeals particularly to small boys age 7 and up. It is well written (unusual in material written for this group) and we love Philip Ardagh's other stuff anyway. This maintains the usual high standard. I highly recommend the series.

1.0 out of 5 stars just plain horrid 31 Dec 2009
By Mlle G
Format:Paperback
I am very disappointed that my mother wasted her money on this book, a purchase she made based on the prize it received recently. The characters are horrible, I don't really want my son reading a book where characters go to laugh at a village idiot for starters. The book is written with 'jokes' and asides in brackets that are neither funny, nor witty, nor relevant, and this is both from an adult's and from a child's point of view.

No stars here, but that wasn't an option hence the one...

How this won any awards is beyond me.
It's like a badly written version of Mr Gum.
