BILLY PLONKA AND THE GROT LABORATORY- the 100% unofficial official parody of one of the greatest children's stories of all time. This modern re-telling of the Roald Dahl's 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' stays true to the wonderful wit of Dahl, but brings the tale into the modern age with a lovely twist at the end. Each character meets their grotty fate as they go on their tour of The Grot Laboratory - as the name suggests, a disgusting place full of scumpiddlinoxious fumes and materials. Words reminiscent of Dahl fill the pages - Whi-ffi (it's like wifi only smellier), whazzplop and picklescooper to name but a few. Nominated for the 2022 Big Book Prize at the Shropshire BookFest.
