Gnarbunga

Gnarbunga

Fresh and lively young picture book with a fun story and exhuberant pictures. Gnarbunga is made from icky, sticky, sludge and one day appears from a mucky and messy hole in the ground. When Gnarbunga’s icky, sticky sludge gets all over the children - they love it! But when it gets all over some grown-ups, they are not so happy. The children decide that Gnarbunga needs something to do - what better than skateboarding! Matthew Bromley studied Graphic Design and Illustration at the University of Hertfordshire and went on to win Best in Show at the D&AD newblood 2010. His loves to skateboard at Stockwell skatepark in London followed by bangers and mash with onion gravy!
