The two ‘Grimble’ stories in one book. Grimble was a fairly ordinary boy of about ten with unusual parents who were in their middle thirties. Grimble’s parents are rather unreliable and he is often left to organise things (including, it would seem, Christmas) for himself. Luckily he is quite good at that sort of thing.

First edition.
