Eating Things on Sticks

Eating Things on Sticks

Summary

Harry is in trouble. He's burned down the family kitchen so now has to spend a week of his summer hols with his uncle Tristram - who's heading off to stay with a new girlfriend - Morning Glory - on a tiny British island.

Harry doesn't expect it to be a lot of fun - with just a wacky competition at the end of the week to look forward to.
He certainly didn't expect to discover all the beards.
Or the angel on the mountain.
Or the helicopters circling overhead all week.
And he definitely didn't think it would be so wet . . .

Reviews

  • Anne Fine's acerbic take on life often assumes a level of sophistication in her young readers. Insights into the emotional lives of grown ups can appeal to children and the misunderstandings that surround Harry and Tristram's trip create comic situations that make the readers, for once, the knowing ones
