Mr Gaskitt does a strange thing one day; he puts on all his clothes right on top of each other. Going out dressed like that makes Mr Gaskitt look very different and it’s lucky that he does when he meets a robber and has to be very brave! An exciting and easy to read story that is full of surprises.
