Laugh your head off in this second GRIMWOOD adventure! Your favourite fox cub siblings Ted and Nancy are back with an all-new wildly funny story that will have children (and their grown-ups) begging for more. Perfect for readers age 7+, and fans of Dog Man, Roald Dahl, David Walliams, Mr Gum and anyone who likes to laugh.
Ted and Nancy are happily settled in Grimwood, loving life with their new friends. But there’s a new dastardly enemy afoot… The mean mayor of neighbouring town Twinklenuts is on a mission to take over Grimwood and kick everyone out! Ted and Nancy must muster up bags of courage, rally their newfound friends together, and even show off their treebonking skills to save the home they’ve grown to love.
Fully illustrated throughout and brim full of heart, laughs and surprises, this is the must-read second title in the bestselling and fantastically funny Grimwood series.

Praise for Grimwood: ‘Funny, anarchic, original and gloriously silly.’ Richard Osman ‘Ted and Nancy are my favourite funny foxes EVER.’ Liz Pichon, author of Tom Gates ‘I CACKLED ALOUD on practically every page. Comic gold, tinged with such tenderness.’ Kiran Millwood Hargrave ‘Grimwood is like Winnie-the-Pooh written by the Pythons, and so madly inventive and funny I was howling with laughter by the third page. This is about to become a fundamental part of 21st century childhood.’ Caitlin Moran
