Tommy and the Groobler

Patrick Whittaker

Can Tommy defeat the Groobler and avoid being turned into a meat pie?

Mushwell Rangers have made it to the play-offs. If they defeat the detested Vilechester Rovers, they will be playing in the First Division next season. Tommy is the Rangers' biggest fan and is looking forward to the biggest game in the club's history.

Things get strange and exciting when Tommy finds a message in a bottle. It is from Lenny the Lion, Mushwell Rangers' beloved mascot. He has been kidnapped by the Groobler.

Without their mascot, Mushwell will lose to Vilechester.

It's up to Tommy to rescue Lenny the Lion. But can he do it before kick off? And will he survive the Groobler's ruthless attempts to kill him?

Hi Nathan. I see you've been visted by La Greenstein. The good news is that he talks the same kind of shit whatever book he's critting. You may want to take a look at some of his work to see if this is a man whose advice on writing is worth listening to -> http://www.goodreads.com/story/show/24... view book

Before you even consider Monkeyfeet's advice, perhaps you should take a look at a sample of his own writing and ask yourself if this is a person who know anything at all about good story-telling: http://www.goodreads.com/story/show/241633-sea-quest view book

Having read your first chapter, I feel I have to say that the person who calls himself 'MonkeyFeet' is talking bollocks and you should ignore him. He obviously has trouble comprehending the simplest of things - such as the fact that the story begins at your grandmother's house. What a tosser! view book
