Publisher's Summary

Philip Ardagh's Unlikely Exploits chart the extraordinary changes in fortune of the downtrodden McNally family beginning with The Fall of Fergal. The setting is an unidentified country suffering from an unexpected breakout of large holes. The McNally children find themselves in The Dell Hotel, the venue for the final of the Tap 'n' Type typing competition, surrounded by a strange assortment of characters ranging from Twinkle-Toes Tweedy, the house detective, to Mr. Peach, a ventriloquist with a very large moustache.
With young Fergal McNally falling to his death at the very beginning, the only way for the McNallys is up.

absolutely brilliant

Philip Ardagh has done it again with this fantastic audio book. Told in his trademark chatty style, The Fall of Fergal is full of ridiculous characters - dastardly, daring and debonair - and the action rollicks along at a terrific pace right to the end (or is it?), with plenty of surprises along the way. Listen to it, and you're in for a 'hole' lot of fun.
