L. Sydney Abel was born in Kingston upon Hull

On a nose-picking day, this came to mind!

It seemed like a normal Spring morning in the Gregory household. But what Mrs. Gregory found on the doorstep that morning was definitely not milk.

It was an enormous baby-rhinoceros-sized thing.

It had one gigantic eye and two horns, and only knew one word - 'GREAT'.

The family named this thing Gruvel.

How did Gruvel come to be on the Gregorys' doorstep? Where has Gruvel come from? And what on earth are they going to do with Gruvel? As the family try to answer these questions, Gruvel teaches them a wonderful lesson and makes a lot of mess in the process!

About the Author

L. Sydney Abel is the pen name of Lawrence Abel. The name was inspired by L. Frank Baum; the author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

Lawrence was born and raised in Kingston upon Hull, England. He is married and has two grown-up children. He attended Hull College, where he qualified as an Electronics Engineer. As a young aspiring musician, Lawrence composed the lyrics to his own music, progressing into the recording studio.

He began inventing stories during his children's early years, never putting pen to paper. Years later, Lawrence was encouraged to revisit the stories from the past and write them down. He has written and illustrated several books for children and young adults. Lawrence has recently ventured into the world of adult fiction, where experiences of the supernatural kind stimulate his imagination.
