Summary
Milk lives in the grubby seaside town of Slopp-on-Sea-a rubbish name for a rubbish town. But Milk's life is pretty rubbish too, so it fits. She loves her Granddad, but these days he's always wandering off somewhere, or asking her befuddled questions. Then one day, he comes back from one of his jaunts with a battered book in his hand containing a recipe for The porridge of knowledge. Intrigued, Milk enlists the help of her friend Carp to try the recipe. At first it looks like all they've managed to create is a lump of malodorous goo-but then they notice that the ants that have been nibbling the porridge are building a mashed potato replica of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. So they decide to try it out themselves. The results are incredible! Suddenly Milk and Carp are the cleverest people in town and Grandad is back to his normal self. Milk and Carp are about to discover that sometimes a little bit of knowledge goes a long way
