Description - Grubtown Tales: Splash, Crash and Loads of Cash by Philip Ardagh

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 (2007-2009)

'Lovers of the absurd and disgusting will delight in Ardagh's new series' The Guardian
