It was quite by chance that I first met the well-known scientist and inventor, Theophilus Grim, on a brisk and beautiful October morning in 1890. I had, of course, heard of Professor Grim prior to that day. Word of the tremendous explosion at the Scientific University of London had reached every corner of the city and far beyond …
So begins the exciting adventures of Professor Theophilus Grim and former surgeon F. Walter Chumbles, a pair of the most unlikely heroes ever to stalk the colorful streets of Victorian London.
Join them in these, the first six installments of The Trying Tales of Chumbles & Grim series of fun novelettes for ages nine through adult.
Professor Theophilus Grim is a clever scientist and inventor who dreams of making the world a better place through his many inventions and various concoctions. The trouble is, every invention he makes has a way of blowing him up, catching him on fire or causing him a great deal of pain.
