Winner of the Red House Children's Book Award, this book is the first in a series of brilliantly funny early readers by Allan Ahlberg. One morning Mr Gaskitt puts on all his clothes, Mrs Gaskitt picks up a robber in her taxi, Gus and Gloria have trouble with a teacher, Horace the cat goes to a friend's house to watch TV and the car radio gets things wrong. What follows is an action-packed, massively swift-paced and farcical romp as different plots interweave and end in a thrilling car chase with Mr Gaskitt saving the day! With full-colour illustrations by Katharine McEwen.
Allan Ahlberg is best known as the author of several award-winning books illustrated by his late wife, Janet, including "The Jolly Postman," He lives in southern England.

A timely reissue in handsome paperback editions. Ahlberg's gift for conveying funny situations and fast-paced action adventure in an uncluttered storyline is perfectly matched by energetic illustrations that fill in the detail Guardian
