Meet the Grunts

Only this morning Kate blogged about a live video interview on Big Book Babble featuring The Grunts author Philip Ardagh and illustrator Axel Scheffler… and it’s not over for The Grunts yet today, because we’re also launching their brand new website, www.meetthegrunts.com!

It’s just the beginning for the site – and there’ll be more lots more to come – but already you can learn about the series and its creators, read excerpts from the first book, The Grunts in Trouble, download lots of fun stuff (including a character quiz, stick-on beard, word searches, and more), and watch films of Philip and Axel. Here are two of the latest videos, of Axel drawing the main characters – Mr and Mrs Grunt and their adopted son, Sunny – and Philip and Axel being interrupted mid-interview by some unwelcome guests…

And don’t forget, there’s also a free game app for the books, The Grunts: Beard of Bees, which you can find on the App Store here – build a buzzing beard of bees for Mr Grunt!

If you haven’t read The Grunts in Trouble yet, you can buy it online here.

Have fun exploring their new home!
