The wrong end of the dog, or, The pedal-bin pelican
Part of the Grubtown tales ; bk. 4 series
Coming a month before the special World Book Day publication is the fourth instalment of the silliest series on record:As eye-witness Beardy Ardagh reports, when famous film star Tawdry Hipbone visits Grubtown for the world premiere of her latest movie, For the Love of Ducks II, Mayor Flabby Gomez couldn't be more excited but, as usual, nothing goes to plan.
Miss Hipbone's dog, Snooks, is snatched by a low-flying pelican, and it's a race against time to find him, in a rescue attempt involving Grubtown's usual ragbag of bungling buffoons.
