About Book

If Beardy Ardagh is to be believed, things all start going on the bonkers side of very wrong when Mayor Flabby Gomez finally finishes knitting his new home and declares a public holiday in Grubtown for its official opening. There will be free ice-cream and entertainment ... only there's been a mix-up at the suppliers and the wrong costumes and props have arrived. And, if that weren't bad enough, there's the matter of a serious leak at Grubtown's new aquarium.
