This story is about Gorgeous George, Allison and Crayon Kenny who are off to Loch Ness to take part in the World Porridge Championships but the locals are behaving rather strangely. Who wants to eat rabbit poo? And what will it taste like? Grandpa Jock has boil-washed his secret invention; whoopee cushion underpants, and he is hoping these no-nonsense knickers will protect his dainty little derrière on the long train journey up north. What’s inside the talking tent and who can toot the tastiest trouser trumpets? Why are all the lakes in England drying up? Why does the soil smell of wee? And can George write a poem so shocking that it makes a school teacher wet her pants? George may come up with the rudest rhymes he can think of but a saboteur is lurking with pots of exploding porridge. Will celebrity chef Heston Bloomingheck lose his eyebrows in the blaze? And just what have the three American scientists, Professor Marmaduke, Commander Chuck Choppers and Peewee Peterson discovered beneath the surface of Loch Ness? There’s something out there and it wees in the water!
This is a quirky and funny story. If you think your children can handle disgusting and crazy ideas, this will be right down their alley. This story will make your tummy turn and is weird but is humorous. If you have read Gorgeous George books before, you’ll know what to expect as it follows along a similar vein. It is basically stories revolving around the strange and weird with added bit of disgusting and funny ideas! I do find it fun to read and it will definitely appeal to older boys! I am looking forward to reading his part 2! Gorgeous George is available from most major bookstores including on-line bookstores like Amazon (Kindle Version also available) and WHSmith.com as well as the My Little Big Town Store (rrp £6.99 plus postage).
