Archie the Advent calendar
Edward And The Christmas Grumps is an adventure like no other because it includes an amazing Advent calendar. just like Edward and Jill, you can get to open a door each day before Christmas and see the enchanted gifts at the same time as they do! Epic? You can check out Archie the Advent calendar, but you won’t be able to open Door One until the First of December! It’s the RULES!
Even more awesome news – you can download the calendar to your phone, tablet or laptop. Just ask an adult to help and we’ll send them the link.
Oh, wait, there’s a message from the pranking penguins. They want you to read this little sample from the book as it proves without doubt that penguins are smarter than grumps!
No Fishing Aloud!
“Together, they sneaked through the gate and into Bah Humbug while the guards were distracted by the fishing penguins.
“What’s all this?” asked Bandit, the chief grump guard.
“We’re fishing,” said Dasher the penguin.
“What you caught?” asked Jasper, another grump.
“A couple of whoppers.”
Bandit was getting suspicious, “Where are they then?” he asked.
“We put them back again,” claimed Prancer, the second penguin.
“But we didn’t think there were any fish here… did we Bandit?”
“There might be Jasper. Look, the sign says, ‘No Fishing Aloud'”.
“It means you can fish here, but quietly,” said Prancer, “otherwise you’ll scare the fish away.”
“Really! So where are the fish?” asked Jasper. “
Yeah, and I don’t see no water either,” said Bandit.
“That’s because you’ve been fished in!” said Dasher.
The penguins dropped the rod and quickly slid away, leaving the guards bemused.
“Those penguins are so stupid. What do they mean,’fished-in’?” asked Bandit.
“They’re so dumb,” replied Jasper.
“Hey look Jasper, they only went and left the rod behind. Fancy a go?”
“Yeah. We’ll show them. But keep quiet we don’t want to scare the fish away now do we?”
They dangled their rod in the hole with no water.
“Nothing… diddly-squat,” said Bandit after a few minutes.
“That’s because we haven’t got any bait, stupid.”
“Do fish like sprouts?” Bandit asked.
“I do wonder about you sometimes, I really do.”
