Uncle Trev tells one story after another about the animals out on his farm, and about his neighbour ...Gotta Henry. He also goes through Mum's cupboards and helps himself to all her gingernut biscuits and Louise cake. If you think Mum should be grateful to get out of the house, she's not. When she comes home, she chases Uncle Trev and his dog, Old Tip, with her broom and threatens what she'll do to 'that man' next time he comes in.

              "When Jack visits his grandparents, there's no television to entertain him. No internet, no mobile phone, no tablets. In fact, there's no technology or modern distractions at all. But he still likes to visit, because Grandad and Granny tell him stories, each trying to outdo the o...ther with a tale taller and wilder than the last. Did you ever hear about the dragon of Waitemata harbour? Or the bridge between the North and South islands? Or why the Beehive is round in shape, and who really made the Marlborough Sounds? And then there's the pumpkin larger than a garden shed, and a wheelbarrow that converts into a boat for a seasick kangaroo. There are lost false teeth, eels and the ingenious invention of the world's first rotary clothesline helicopter, and a flying train that touches down at the station in Nelson.
