Foxes on the run! A crabby cat out for revenge! Fox cub siblings Ted and Nancy are being chased by Princess Buttons––the scariest street cat in the Big City. Running for their lives, the pair flees for Grimwood—a peaceful town in the countryside. The only problem? Grimwood is NOT as they expected.
When Ted and Nancy arrive in Grimwood, instead of peace and quiet, they’re met with thieving eagles, dramatic ducks, riotous rabbits, and a whole host of unusual characters. Grimwood is . . . weird. But when Princess Buttons tracks them down, they must unite with the other animals of Grimwood in a mind-bending race against time!
Dynamically illustrated and narrated by a hilarious cockroach (and bus driver) named Eric Dynamite, this chapter book series is perfect for young readers who love animals and are looking for big laughs. A story of friendship, humor, and adventure, Grimwood will delight both children and adults.
