The Grotty Spoon is not what you’d call a ‘normal’ restaurant.
The food is revolting, the service is slow, the chairs are uncomfortable, the toilets are infested, the dishwasher is a Yak called Fee Fee and every night something goes disastrously wrong in the kitchen… oh, and it’s also a holiday hotspot for jet-setting bacteria.
Mr Sprout, the cruel owner and talentless Head Chef, is as cold hearted as a dead lizard. He’ll do anything to win a Golden Placemat Award. So when Mr Sprout goes looking for a Yumma Yum Bird, the Trainee Chef attempts to make a deadly curry, and Pierre the waiter is left to entertain the Awards Inspector, a recipe for disaster begins to bubble that will undoubtedly end with a gloriously gross BANG!!! (But on the bright side the E-coli Family will have a delightful holiday).
“This book has wit and style and some very funny bits and throwaway lines that put it head and shoulders above others in the genre… It is cheerful, but not mindless. It is funny, not stupid. It is sometimes sharp and sly, but never mean or creepy. And every now and then there’s something between the lines funny, just for the parents.” – Pop Bob, customer review on Amazon.com
If you enjoyed Roald Dahl’s ‘The Twits’ or David Walliams’ ‘Mr Stink’ you’ll love the ‘The Grotty Spoon’.
