          • The first book in a hilarious, action-packed trilogy. Eddie Dickens is sent off to stay with his aunt and uncle and a riotously funny comedy of errors ensues. When both Eddie Dickens's parents catch a disease that makes them turn yellow, go a bit crinkly around the edges, and smell of hot water bottles, it's agreed he should go and stay with relatives at their house, Awful End. Unfortunately for Eddie, those relatives are Mad Uncle Jack and Even-Madder Aunt Maud. . . . This hilarious historical spoof, the first in the Eddie Dickens trilogy, has been called "a scrumptious cross between Dickens and Monty Python."

          • My Review
      • I liked the book it was funny but I don't think I would read it again. It was fine but I didn't like it that much! I liked how the author drew the characters and I liked how he drew the parents. I really liked how he drew the mom, she looks kinda' funny! I liked the story line, and how he wrote the book. It was good! I liked their rat thing! It's weird looking! :) But It is an okay book to read! I think it is a pretty good kids book! There is nothing bad in it, No cuss words or anything bad! Not the best book ever, but maybe worth the read because of the illustrations. Its good for Ages 9-12!
