Another hilarious tale of family fun featuring Harry and his family, stars of The More the Merrier and Eating Things on Sticks.
Aunt Susan – an unstoppable force and possibly the bossiest woman alive – is on the phone and that’s never good. She’s 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. Unfortunately, Harry and his family can’t really do any of those things. Aunt Susan has no idea of the mayhem she’s about to unleash.
“the third of Anne Fine’s wickedly funny books about the Mountfield family…Anne Fine is the kind of writer who creates characters and puts them through their paces in scenes constructed so well you can’t see the joins.” – Guardian
