The Curse of the Bogle's Beard

The proud ruler of a vast pickling empire, Granny Hogsflesh hides some strange-smelling secrets. Everything in her mansion stinks of vinegar and is a hideous shade of purple – including Granny herself. When Barnaby is forced to go and live with Granny after his father’s mysterious disappearance, he quickly realises there’s more to her pickling kingdom than meets the eye. Is she behind what happened to his dad, who, burping and slurping, vanished into the night? Or are some wicked bog-monsters to blame? Soon Barney must infiltrate the disgusting worlds of pickles and monsters to save his family from a sticky ending…

“You’ll laugh, you’ll squirm… you’ll never look at pickling the same way again. Great stuff.” Guy Bass

    Its a good book, but I think its a bit young for a 12 year old like me, I gave it to my 7 year old sister and she could read it to herself. But the book in itself was good the way it was a mystery and I loved the idea of a gruesome granny running a pickle factory!! You should read this if you are under around 10ish you will find it funny and a good laugh!! :)
