Grubtown Tales: When Bunnies Turn Bad


If Beardy Ardagh is to be believed, the trouble begins when a monkey escapes from The Grubtown Old Folks Home, or when The Sun-Ripe Raisin Man decides to give up shrivelled dried grapes and to grow Vegetables instead. Whatever the beginning, it all ends up with Far Too Many Bunny Rabbits and a serious problem with paper aeroplanes.

Philip Ardagh shows just what it is that would make any sane-minded person avoid visiting Grubtown for business OR pleasure at all costs, and EXACTLY why fun-loving readers (of all ages) should head straight for a shelf of Grubtown Tales .
