The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for Roald Dahl's Funny Prize 2009. .
Prize-winning Children’s Laureate Anne Fine is more entertaining than anyone else about families. Creating circumstances in which everything possible can go wrong, she delights her readers with bizarre situations that are hugely entertaining. Having burnt down the kitchen (by mistake, he protests), Harry saves himself from the fate of a week spent with Aunt Susan by blackmailing his Uncle Tristram to take him on holiday. Setting off for a remote Scottish island, Harry and Tristram ignore the strange warning the ferryman gives them but soon wish they hadn’t. Without anything to entertain him, Harry has to survive rain, floods, Tristram’s mystic girlfriend Morning Glory, a host of wonderful misunderstandings and, worst of all, almost NO food. Harry and Tristram’s holiday adventure is pure joy and not to be missed on any account.
Harry and Tristram appeared in an earlier novel of Anne’s, The More the Merrier.
Eating Things on Sticks by Anne Fine
A hilarious tale of a vacation on a remote British island where the week’s highlight is the annual fair with its Eating Things on Sticks competition!
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….
