Mr B's review

Prepare to laugh your head off… before it gets bitten off! Ted and Nancy are two young foxes who have moved to the strange woodland of Grimwood, a place filled with some very unique animals. Treebonking squirrels, an over-dra- matic duck, a murderous eagle, a DEFINITELY NOT CUTE rabbit with anger issues, and many more make up this wild and wonderful place. But Ted and Nancy’s happy new life is about to come under threat when the dastardly mayor of neighbouring Twinklenuts reveals his plans for the forest. Cute, hilarious and full of mischief, the Grimwood series is guaranteed to leave the whole family in fits of laughter.


Laugh your head off in this second adventure in the bestselling, highly acclaimed Grimwood series.
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, Loki, Bunny vs Monkey and anyone who likes to laugh.

Ted and Nancy love their new life in Grimwood – the forest where anything can happen. But the dastardly 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 friends, and show off their treebonking skills to save the home they’ve grown to love.

Fully illustrated throughout and full of heart, laughs and surprises, this is the must-read second title in the bestselling and fantastically funny Grimwood series.
