If you were a child in the 1980s, or indeed if you had a child in the 1980s, you would certainly remember Grug. If you still have any of the Grug books, they would be collectors’ items by now because the series by Ted Prior has been out of print since 1992.
Well the world has changed since the 1980s. Grug is on Facebook and he has more than 50,000 friends (and a couple of videos). And he has entered the world of flash mobbing.
And September will see the first new Grug book in 30 year’s as Ted Prior’s lovable character will be the official face of the children’s campaign for Books Alive.
