The Greeblies



Bobby and Georgia live in a normal house with their mum and their dad and their pet dog, Rory. But in that house, there's a whole world going on that they know nothing about . . . the world of the greeblies! Greeblies like Hemi the bedbug, Spritzer the dust mite, Darren the blowfly and Nick the tick. Five of the funniest (and grossest!) stories you'll ever read – complete with lots of disgusting bug facts – The Greeblies is about all those itchy little critters that live right under our noses (and in our hair!).
