Publisher's Summary

In this eagerly awaited sequel to A House Called Awful End, Eddie Dickens narrowly avoids being blown up, trampled by horses, hit by a hot-air balloon, and arrested...only to find himself falling head over heels for a girl with a face like a camel's and into the hands of a murderous gang of escaped convicts, up on the misty moors, who have a "little job" for him to do. All the old favorites are here, including Mad Uncle Jack and Malcolm (or is it Sally?) the stuffed stoat, along with some worrying-looking new ones. Beware!


What the Critics Say

"Martin Rayner keeps Ardagh's sprightly work lively as he delivers puns, author asides, and jokes aplenty." (AudioFile)
"Ardagh's prose is a blend of archaic elegance, silly puns, and direct address, with playful author and plot digressions." (Booklist)

Very funny series

My whole family enjoys the comedy in these books. (Lots of plays on words.) Even my teens. The reader and his voices are great.
