"Even though this book makes you go yuck my 8yr old loved it and as a parent, I got hooked and needed to keep reading with her."- 5 star Amazon Review

"My 10 year old daughter is a voracious reader and this one really hit a high note for her. She has been giggling to herself throughout . . . If I ever manage to get hold of the Kindle she has claimed I will read it myself now." - 5 star Amazon Review

"What a weird book. Downloaded it for my 6yr old who thoroughly loved it. Great to know that Mr and Mrs E-COLI loved their holiday too ;-)" - 5 star Amazon Review

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
~ Every night something goes disastrously wrong in the kitchen
~ And it’s 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 grotty eBook, self-illustrated with over thirty pencil drawings, is hands down the grottiest story ever told! If you enjoyed Roald Dahl’s The Twits or David Walliams’ Mr Stink, you’ll love The Grotty Spoon.

Shipping & Returns

Shipping: When you order a book, it gets printed especially for you and dispatched by the printer (the most environmentally friendly way to print books). This usually takes around 3 days. You can also choose between a slow and cheap or fast and less cheap delivery in the checkout.

Returns: You've got 30 days to decide whether you want to return the book for a full refund. Read the full Refunds Policy here.

Why Buy Directly from the Author?

There is no way one little author can compete with the big online stores who can offer free delivery and cheap prices. But when you order directly from authors, you are supporting their independence, and also the independent printers they use, which is much appreciated!

It's a bit like being a Patreon. More of the money you spend will go into the creator's pocket. And the more times that happens, the more books will get created.
