Franco & Grubber
and the Pearls of Nebulus
What happens when a human and a stalblagger are sent to the broogle mines of the Golgors? Do they escape, and what does that have to do with bacon sandwiches?

Join Franco and Grubber as they encounter gift shops filled with attacking mushrooms, maniacal bus drivers, rabid librarians, and a scurzel named Pod. Discover what colour the grass should be painted to stop the penguins falling asleep and whether our intrepid travellers can deliver the packlarge to the quondrotional arena in time.

Quirky and humorous, the story drifts through a dream-world like thistledown in a spring breeze or a nice cup of tea.

It even comes with its own song!
