The Lovereading4Kids comment
Agatha Bilke's first adventure, The Awful Tale of Agatha Bilke was shortlisted for numerous awards and girls in particular from 7 upwards will be thrilled to hear that another adventure is now out. Operation Ward 10 is totally original, completely off-the-wall story that will have enormous appeal to fans of Lemony Snicket and Philip Ardagh. Wherever Agatha goes chaos ensues and having got herself stuck in a hospital she performs some major surgery and highjacks an ambulance. The results are alarming but when she gets to meet the most obnoxiously nice girl, things get well and truly out of hand. Pattenden's voice is very different from many contemporary authors and the wonderfully eccentric storyline will have kids bent double in laughter. Make sure you check out the other books in the Agatha Bilke series, The Awful Tale of Agatha Bilke and Paris Match.
Operation Ward Ten by Sian Pattenden
Agatha is in trouble, big trouble. After a bizarre accident involving a designer handbag and a can of hairspray in the park, Agatha Bilke is admitted to the children's ward of the Rottingdean Hospital. She is soon surprised to find herself feeling quite at home among her fellow patients - kids like Lynda Peanuts, a girl with an emotional attachment to her drip, and Holbeck Folbeck, a trust-fund boy with some very bad habits. But when x-ray reveals a ghastly truth - the sort of thing you wouldn't want anyone to know about - Agatha decides she's got to get out, quick. In this hilarious new adventure, The Worst Girl Ever Known to Humnaity performs routine stomach surgey, carajacks an ambulance and uncovers the cause of a National Disaster. But has she murdered matron? And can she stop 'Holby' finding out her terrible secret?
