All hail Grubtown — where mayhem rules the day and exceptional silliness is a way of life!
This is the first book in Phil Ardagh’s brilliant and whacky Grubtown series, and it won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. Here for the first time is an original audio recording — bringing Phil’s vivid stories to life in an exciting new format.
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…
Philip Ardagh was born in 1961, in Kent, England, where he grew up with one brother. He was christened at St Paul’s Cathedral in London by the Canon Residentiary, Chancellor and Chapter Treasurer, Frederick Hood, who co-wrote, with poet laureate John Betjeman, the introduction to the book Folly Farm by philosopher Cyril Joad.
Ardagh was educated privately at five different schools. He did not apply to go to university but got a place at Watford College of Art in the advertisement copywriting course, then the only one in Britain.
