|aUncle Gobb and the green heads /|ca story in twenty-three chapters and two half-chapters (with helpful advice, helpful information, genies, baked beans, flashbacks, lizards, jumblies, weasels and mud supplied at no extra cost) by Michael Rosen ; with excruciatingly superb pictures full of helpful advice, weasels and baked beans by Neal Layton.
Even though Malcolm managed to bamboozle and confuzle Uncle Gobb in the last book (hooray!), it was only temporary (boo!). Uncle Gobb is still living with him and still roaring at him about peas and poetry and Peter Parker. This time the plan to get rid of Uncle Gobb has to be mega. It has to be epic. It has to involve America, the Jumblies, the Genie (of course), Aunty Brenda the Mender and Malcolm's long-lost dad. But Malcolm doesn't know that Uncle Gobb also has a plan. A plan to get rid of Malcolm once and for all...A bonkers book about standing up for yourself, from two crazily creative people. Sure to delight fans of David Walliams, Andy Stanton and Tom Gates.
