Oh dear. The Grunts are back. Mr Grunt has to get a POGI (that’s a Person of Great Importance, apparently) to a certain person at a certain time. On an island. And there are others out there who want the POGI for themselves. Add to this the wheelchair-whizzing Speedy McGinty, the mysterious Max and Matha (sharing a single moustache between them) and Rodders Lasenby who’s turned rudeness into a fine art, and you’ll see why the Grunts’ stolen son Sunny doesn’t know who to trust ... or whether Fingers the elephant will sink the boat and leave them all at sea. PRAISE FOR THE GRUNTS IN TROUBLE A Telegraph Top Ten Children’s Book of the Year “clever word-play, irony and plain silliness ... wonderfully incisive and daft illustrations ... laugh out loud.” Telegraph “Their adventures are as unsavoury as they are entertaining ... Fans of Roald Dahl’s The Twits will delight in this disgusting but amiable family.” Guardian
