When Barnaby’s dad leaves the house one day and doesn’t return, he and his mum have to go and live with Granny Hogsflesh. Sure she has a big flash house and lots of money, but she runs Hogsflesh Pickle Company and insists they eat pickled egg and onions constantly. Not to mention her terrible vinegar breath. Barnaby has a strange old diary that his father dropped accidently on his departure – and as Barnaby delves deeper he discovers secrets about his Granny and her past. Did she kidnap his dad and have him pickled in her secret cellar?
