Product description

It’s that alligator… Dad should never have brought it into the house. Crunchbag has escaped and he’s eaten Granny!

Nicholas is used to his dad’s loopy antics. But it looks like dad has finally flipped when he brings an alligator home as a pet. With Crunchbag around, there’s never a dull moment! Soon he’s eating the Sunday lunch, running riot in the park and hiding in the neighbour’s pond! But even Crunchbag wouldn’t eat poor defenceless Granny… would he?

    The character that I like is granny she is so funny. Her hearing is terrible, I like the bit where the boy is trying to say that his dad has an alligator and she thinks he’s asking her if she wants any potatoes for tea.
