The Non-Adventures of Mr Sproutface and Mr Wibbleton

Children - General Comedy - General Children Comedy

by Nick Lovering


Mr Sproutface and Mr Wibbleton, committed jumper wearers, museum visitors and lovers of minestrone soup, are looking for a way to escape their work in the circus. One afternoon, while sitting in a puddle of spilt breakfast cereal, they decide to follow their dream and bring cheese to the people of Basingstoke. However, the modern world is difficult. Sometimes, one faces prolems that cannot be fixed with a list and a damp cloth. Whether it is cheese-dinosaurs, bakers intent on World Domination, missing hamsters or being locked in a trouser museum, non-adventures are never far away. But for every problem, there is a solution. And as long as Mr Sproutface and Mr Wibbleton have their jumpers, a bowl of minestrone soup and each other, they will find a way to keep their dream alive. This story is aimed at children between 7 and 11 but there's plenty for adults to enjoy as well.

A review from the CUT team....

Mr Sproutface and Mr Wibbleton are two men, bonded by a love of cheese, who decide to open up a cheese shop in quiet town Basingstoke. Should that not be enough to hook you… their “non-adventures” involve megalomaniac capitalists, the movies of Ryan Sixpack, missing hamsters, revered theatrical luvvies, and extreme sports, as well as list- making and one or two early nights. This charming junior novel of 14 chapters is aimed at children, but there is definitely plenty for adults to enjoy as well, with a number of laugh out loud moments.
