Meet the Grunt - if you dare - the grumpiest troll in the world!
When the Grunt finds a party invitation on his doormat, he is furious - he hates Tuesdays, he hates visitors, and he hates parties.
But then he meets the Grouch … and things are never quite the same again.

 

Sample Text...

‘Who’s dared leave this on my mat?’ growled The Grunt.

‘I don’t like Tuesdays. I don’t like visitors. And I really don’t like parties … so I’m not coming!’

With that, he tore the invitation into tiny shreds, then stomped back inside and finally got to work …

Not picking bits of mould off his teeth …

Not cleaning the bath …

Not doing the washing up …

Not even flushing the toilet!

Boring Tuesday morning ended and boring Tuesday afternoon began. So The Grunt went to town - it was, after all, the perfect place … to be horrid!

    This review is from: The Grunt and the Grouch (Paperback)

    On behalf of Jenny Kiss who bought this book for her grandson Jake...
    It's a fantastic traditional tale that fully engaged my grandson.It has all the elements that grab the interest of young children. Lots of humour, yucky monsters, a heart warming ending with smashing illustrations.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars Troll-tastic!, 11 May 2010
    By  G. Rogerson  (Leeds, UK) - See all my reviews
    (REAL NAME)   
    This review is from: The Grunt and the Grouch (Paperback)
    This is a great book that children will love. It features a disgusting troll that does disgusting things. The text is cleverly written with lots of alliteration and rhyming words which makes it fun to read out loud. The pictures are disgusting enough to delight children. There is a delightful message of friendship and being considerate of other peoples' (or trolls') feelings. Buy this book - you won't be disappointed.
