Nathan is a shy, lonely boy who spends his time between school and his baby-sitter's house, Anne Hardbag. Anne is a horrid, lazy woman who lives on a farm and makes Nathan wash all her potatoes before they go to market to be sold. This all changes one day when a gremlin falls down Nathan's chimney. It causes all kinds of hilarious situations, from food fights to volcanic explosions. Suitable for ages 8+. This story is full of fun that will appeal to kids who love mess, chaos and a happy ending
Dishing out the disgusting gloop was Mrs. Crumb. She was a very small woman with short, curly, purple hair. She wore a huge pair of glasses that were far too big for her tiny face. Nathan thought she must be at least one hundred years old, she had that many wrinkles.
Mrs. Crumb was the only old person Nathan had ever met. She was very forgetful, and never remembered any of the children's names. Nathan had heard that old people lost their memories. They also lost their hair, their teeth and their hearing. His mum said they even lost their marbles.
Mrs. Crumb was a nice dinner lady, she smiled at all the children as she dished out lunch. Her smile looked funny to Nathan, like her teeth were too big for her mouth. He often thought they would fall out and land with a splat in the green gunge she served.
