Stinking Rich and Just Plain Stinky

(2009)
(The first book in the Grubtown Tales series)
A novel by

 
 
You won't find Grubtown on any maps. The last time any map-makers were sent anywhere near the place they were found a week later wearing nothing but pages from a telephone directory, and calling for their mothers. It's certainly a town and certainly grubby - except for the squeaky clean parts - but everything else we know about the place comes from Beardy Ardagh, town resident and author of these tales. Grubtown is full of oddballs - from the singing Grumbly girls to a family of duck-haters, and an out-sized mayor who's knitting a new house - but Manual Org is too repulsive even for them. Getting him to leave town is top priority, until the discovery of a humongous diamond changes everything...
