In the town of Cuckooville, Mrs. Gobbledygook speaks nothing but a nonsense language, and the mayor has had enough! “This has got to stop!” he demands. But has the mayor spoken too soon?

One day, disaster strikes the town. Strange foreigners have invaded, and no one can understand a word of what they are saying—no one, that is, except for the Gobbledygook-speaking Mrs. Gobbledygook! Will she be the hero of the day and finally interpret what these newcomers are requesting? Renowned illustrator Delphine Durand and Kate Greenaway–nominated author Susan Chandler have created a hilarious and entertaining collaboration in this jaunty book about acceptance, diversity, and neighborliness.
