Despite their glorious simplicity, they capture wonderfully the character of Grimble and bring his story alive.

Just the kind of inappropriate thing you love when you are a kid. I revisit it every few years and each time I see a different side to it. I read this as a child several times and flicked through it again recently.

I’d always looked forward actually to meeting him. I was looking for something to record and send to my cleemnt to see how they’d react to a story written in a different age and world.
