Product description

‘Funny, anarchic, original and gloriously silly.’ – Richard Osman

‘Ted and Nancy are my favourite funny foxes EVER.’ – Liz Pichon, author of Tom Gates

‘I CACKLED ALOUD on practically every page. Comic gold, tinged with such tenderness.’ – Kiran Millwood Hargrave

‘Grimwood is like Winnie-the-Pooh written by the Pythons, and so madly inventive and funny I was howling with laughter by the third page. This is about to become a fundamental part of 21st century childhood’ – Caitlin Moran

Laugh your head off with this fully-illustrated new series from award-winning Nadia Shireen. Perfect for readers age 7 to 107, fans of Dog Man, Roald Dahl, Mr Gum and David Walliams, and anyone who loves to laugh.

Fox cub siblings Ted and Nancy are on the run from Princess Buttons, the scariest street cat in the Big City. They flee for Grimwood, expecting to find refuge in the peaceful countryside. Instead, they are met with thieving eagles, dramatic ducks, riotous rabbits and a whole host of unusual characters. Grimwood is . . . weird. But when Princess Buttons tracks them down, Nancy and Ted and the animals of Grimwood must unite in a mind-bending race against time . . .

This memorable, distinctive and warm-hearted comedy series will have kids begging to read more.

Grimwood: Party Animals, the must-read fourth Grimwood adventure OUT NOW!
