The Grunts in Trouble

Meet Mr and Mrs Grunt. They’re not that bad, surely? No, actually, they ARE! Neither clean nor clever, this anarchic pair are as grotty as they come, and they’re not even ashamed of it! Follow their adventures as they set off in their rickety homemade caravan, drawn by the donkeys Clip and Clop and joined by their sort-of son, Sunny. As this yucky family upset furious servants, greedy lords and angry bees, they are heading for trouble with a capital T! A wickedly wacky new comedy by a Roald Dahl Funny Prize winner, with hilarious pictures by Axel Scheffler.
