Bliss! A lovely, quiet, nothing-to-do and nothing-on-the-calendar Sunday . . .
Well, that's until bossy Aunt Susan - an unstoppable force - is on the phone insisting that Harry and his family come down to help her a local event she's promised to organise: the Great Toadpool Show.
It means swinging from a trapeze. Or walking on stilts. Or riding a unicycle . . . And that's not counting the fortune-telling tent, the tombola, or the choir singalong.
Aunt Susan has no idea of the mayhem she's about to unleash.
An enjoyable blend of adult knowingness and subversive silliness, enhanced by expert illustrations by Kate Aldous that fit the story scrupulously
This latest rip-roaring story from Anne Fine will have young readers laughing aloud . . . This is comic writing at its best from an established and successful children’s author
