He also knows that Ogglies never have tummy ache even though they gobble up the most peculiar things – for example, rice-nail casserole with smelly socks au gratin. There must be a reason for this, the professor thinks and, with the aid of the Ogglies, sets to work developing an efficacious remedy for tummy ache with the aim of winning first prize at the Inventors’ Congress. The trouble is that he hadn’t reckoned with the Ogglies’ stubbornness. And then Professor Fizzywine’s medicine turns out to have a completely different effect from the one he intended!

The C for computer is fine because the Ogglies like eating computers just as much as DVDs. This is the toad-slimiest way for all Oggly fans to learn the alphabet and how to make up rhymes – and for everyone else the perfect opportunity to at last become an Oggly fan, as well.

Tidying up, washing themselves or going to school – those are things the Ogglies generally don’t like at all. But with the amusing learning pads, it’s real fun to play letter games and write first words – slimy-sludge and cheesy-feet! Curriculum-based exercises help the children to repeat and remember what they have learnt in school in a playful way. | 5 +

Soon after, a green creatures hatches from it: a flying dragon. They decide to keep it, and when the dragon falls ill, the Ogglies do all they can to get it back on its feet again. Nothing helps. It isn’t until the dragon falls into Muckpond and gulps down litres of mucky water that they realise what is ailing him. Then when he goes and sets Grandma Oggly’s chair on fire, they all know exactly what to call him: Firebottom.
