Themes: Camping/ Grandfathers/ Practical Jokes/ Pukekos

Meg and her grandfather go camping but this is no ordinary camping trip as they are both addicted to playing practical jokes scoring each other off through a day and a night. Then, just as they about to sit down to a good cup of tea and some chocolate biscuits they find the tables have been turned on them both  - I can’t imagine how that happened they say together. Zany illustrations and a warm good humoured story make this a book small children will demand to have read over and over again – and older ones will enjoy for themselves.
