"Get ready for more hilarity in the second book of the uproarious series from Roald Dahl Funny Prize-winning author Philip Ardagh and the illustrator of The Gruffalo, Axel Scheffler.
Meet Mr. Grunt, a man on a very peculiar mission. He has been tasked with delivering a Person of Great Importance (POGI) to someone named Mrs. Bayliss by the twenty-fifth. The catch? He can't reveal any more details, not even to his lovely wife, Mrs. Grunt. This top-secret operation must remain hidden because there are people out there trying to snatch the POGI.
As the adventure unfolds, Mr. Grunt is most excited about the silver coins he's been promised for his efforts. Meanwhile, Sunny, the Grunts' stolen son, has many questions about the strange journey. Who is the cyclist with the big earring? Why does the POGI wear a barrel all the time? Is Rodders Lasenby a lovely person or the rudest man on the planet? And how long will it take before they find themselves in deep waters?
Prepare for a rollicking adventure full of mysteries and absurdities!"
