The Slimy Stuarts by Terry Deary- old paperback
Terry was born in Sunderland, England, in 1946 and now lives in County Durham, in the North-east of England.
Terry's father (Billy) was a butcher in Hendon, Sunderland, and his mother (Freda) was the manageress of a clothing shop. He worked many years in his father's butcher shop as a boy. It was better than school where he was beaten, bullied and abused by his loathsome teachers.
