February 2013 Book of the Month There’s lots to disgust in this entertainingly grisly sequel to The Curse of the Bogle’s Beard. Barnaby Figg and his father are busy working in Granny Hogsflesh’s pickling factory. Barnaby hates bogles and hopes that his previous encounter will be the end of them. But, after Granny Hogsflesh accidentally pickles her cousin, the bogles are back with vengeance. Can Barnaby stop them? Bogles and the disgusting territory they occupy will delight all fans of those other disgusting heroes such as Mr Gum and Mr Stink.
