Meet Mr and Mrs Grunt. Oh, go on. They're not that bad. No, actually, they are. Maybe worse, even. But Sunny, their sort-of son, is okay. They stole him from a washing line as a baby.

Sticky around and you'll also meet Lord Bigg of Bigg Manor, Bigg-hater Larry Smalls, Mimi the Bigg Manor boot boy (yup, she's a girl) and more. Well, you'll have to read the book to find that out. But I should mention the bees. Did I warn you about the bees?
