Grublin is a sticky, smelly little ball of challenging mischief who literally drops into Andrew’s world. Both of them are very ordinary, if a bit dull, but the combination of these two proves to be the catalyst for some exciting adventures. How would you deal with a butt-pinching bully, family fury directed unfairly at you, a fire in your bedroom, not to mention aliens and dinosaur invasions?

And who is this nasty character, Whingeling? He doesn’t get much of a mention but he starts the whole sequence of events. Something warm, with a steady heartbeat, nestled in his pyjama pocket and gave Andrew a nice fuzzy feeling. Grublin proves to be the best friend Andrew ever had. It all happened in today’s world. It could be happening to you.

Is there something under your bed that would explain the disappearance of your ballpoint pens? Are you sure there’s nothing swimming in your washing machine or hiding in the deep recesses of your bag? Better have a look and check. You never know.

The author lives in a Shropshire hamlet surrounded by beautiful countryside with rats, mice, wasps, and very large farm machinery. She has always enjoyed the companionship of children and for some time taught in a primary school. When her three girls arrived, teaching full-time was reduced to supply teaching and private tuition. During this time, she attended Keele University, taking part in a creative writing course and a correspondence course in cartoon drawing.

In this 1980s period, a very reluctant boy pupil prompted Kitty to invent Grublin to inspire him to invent his own adventures and so this little personality came to be. Surrounded now by a large family of grandchildren, she desires more than ever to introduce them to the magical world of reading as she believes that, even in today’s media fest, there is real magic in the pages of a book. You may ask why it has taken 20 years for Grublin to arrive. Simple answer: Life, along with all those family ups and downs!
