The Grunts: Beard of Bees

Build a buzzing beard of bees for Mr Grunt!

This funny, fun (and rather addictive) game, a tie-in game for The Grunts book series, written by Philip Ardagh and published in the UK by Nosy Crow in September, features original artwork by The Gruffalo illustrator Axel Scheffler and is entirely free to download.

It requires fast fingers, quick thinking… and no fear of bees! Players have to build the biggest beard of buzzing bees as possible for Mr Grunt before the time runs out, but they have to be careful – flowers, birds, and butterflies will all make his bees fly away. Collecting bees quickly means bonus time rewards. Players can compete with friends for the highest score. You can even join the fun on Twitter, recording your score with the #beardofbees hashtag.

Key features:

  • All-new artwork by The Grunts illustrator Axel Scheffler
  • Hilarious voice narration by series author Philip Ardagh
  • An original score by BAFTA-winning composer Robin Beanland
  • Ingenious gameplay by Nosy Crow’s award-winning app developer team
