Holiday Read #3 ‘The Grunts All at Sea,’ by Philip Ardagh, illustrated by Axel Scheffler.

Holiday Read #3 comes courtesy of my son, who has been giggling his way through this one on his sun lounger.

In the second book of the series, we are reintroduced to The Grunts, a family who are neither clean nor clever but who manage to have fantastic adventures all the same.

When I asked my son what it was about, he delighted in telling me that the Grunts had to safely transport a POGI (Person Of Great Importance) to a lady called Mrs Bayliss and that the POGI had to wear a barrel! So far, so off the wall!

As I would expect from one of Ardagh’s books, The Grunts is full of madcap humour and ridiculous scenarios. I was dragged away from my own book to listen to the insane conversation on this page as read by a chuckling son:

He says it would be perfect for: ‘Anyone who likes books with jokes  in. Especially bad jokes.’ Can’t say fairer than that!

Happy giggle-snorting.
