Is it teething time for your little one?

This is a perfectly ordinary story featuring a perfectly ordinary ten-year-old boy called Malcolm, whose life becomes a little less ordinary when his bossy Uncle Gobb comes to stay.


As far as Uncle Gobb is concerned, everyone and everything, including the table, needs to do more homework – he sounds like a right laugh! But he has been to China, didn't you know?


Baked beans, a school which tries to make interesting things boring, the famed Italian city of Ponky and a genie, who appears when you rub your nose, all form part of an incredibly hilarious story. 


Uncle Gobb and the Dread Shed also includes a lot of very useful facts, although many of which are untrue, but hilarious!


Written by Michael Rosen, a hugely successful author of every sort of children’s book and the Children’s Laureate from 2007-2009, and illustrated by Neal Layton, whose illustrations have won him plenty of awards including the Smarties Prize and Gold award.
