The Hungrumptious Blumpfh

£5.99

There are poems about talking fish and chips; suicidal peas; stinking, squishy sprouts; faking illness so you can miss school; a Hungrumptious Blumpfh (and I bet you’ve never met one of THOSE before), and even a poem about my mum. Oh, and by the way, if you answered ‘no’ to those earlier questions, you can still buy this book. Ok?

Product Description

Has your mum ever been shopping without any clothes on? Have you ever met a real life crocodile in your local supermarket? Do you long to miss a day of school and fly to space instead? If the answer to any of these questions is a loud ‘yes’, then this is the book for you. Inside this poetry collection are poems about all of these things and plenty more besides.

*Final Panto Announcement*

If you’ve ordered tickets from me, please let me know when / where I can get them to you and I’ll let you know how you can pay. I’m happy to deliver the local ones or post out tickets to those further afield.

If you would still like tickets there are still some left for Monday / Tuesday / Thursday night. I think a few left for Friday / Saturday night too.

Come along - it’s a great way to get into the Christmas spirit, and a lot of fun. Plus, there’s ice cream!

The BFG visited Violet and Mabel’s school today. His planned visit was announced yesterday. Violet quickly worked out who it would be, but Mabel didn’t.

“How will he fit in our school, daddy?” she asked, as Violet winked knowingly in my direction. Violet was SO excited last night to be in on the secret.

“You’ve got the best job ever,” she squealed this morning.

And you know what? On days like these I really have. The look of pure joy on Mabel’s face whilst I was clowning around in assembly was something that I’ll never forget.

I like being the BFG - he’s friendly and funny and kind, and, rather usefully, his brain is all scrambled - just like mine.

This may be the last chance I ever get to work with any of my girls in school, and if it turns out to be that way, then what a fine way to bow out.

They were SO excited and SO proud.

Just like their dad.

*Just before this photo was taken, the BFG said: “I is thinking you girls must be having a very nice dad.” They nodded furiously. I noticed the BFG smiled bigger than ever. And was that a hint of a tear in his eye...?!*

High Bank Hi Jinks!

I was back at one of my favourite schools today - High Bank in Liversedge. It was them, remember, for whom we collected all those books earlier in the year. I just LOVE this school. I was reminded once again...
