Publisher's Summary

Follow the disaster magnets of St Mary's as they hurtle around history! The ninth book in The Chronicles of St Mary's Series collects the best-selling short stories in audio for the first time.
'When a Child Is Born': a jump back to 1066 to witness the coronation of William the Conqueror goes slightly astray.
'Roman Holiday': Max and her team become spectacularly involved with Julius Caesar, Cleopatra and a basket of confused asps.
'Christmas Present': an attempt to rescue lost historians involving an enraged pig and Boudicca herself.
'The Very First Damned Thing': discover the truth about the very beginning of St Mary's.
'Ships and Stings and Wedding Rings': a gun left behind in ancient Egypt and a race against time to prevent a catastrophe.
'The Great St Mary's Day Out': hooray! It's a happy holiday. For everyone except Max, the only one with her mind on the job.
'My Name Is Markham': Alfred, the cakes and Mr Markham. The Great British Bake Off it's not!
And a bonus a new and previously unpublished short story - 'A Perfect Storm'.


What the Critics Say

"Taylor has written a madcap and very funny hodgepodge of a novel whose pacing and humour is reminiscent of a Simon Pegg Edgar Wright film." (Booklist)
