The Lovereading4Kids comment
This, despite ‘misery’ in its title is a thoroughly entertaining, witty read and one which school children aged 10+ will really hook in to. Mister Misery is a well drawn character, who you will both like and despise in turn, whose life as a child in a poor area of a town was blighted by his mean and miserable parents and by an unhappy time at school. Roll on a few years and the school has now been rebuilt and the surrounding area smartened up but Mister Misery isn’t happy about this and takes revenge. But, he’d not taken into account a group of feisty school kids. Readers will warm to them instantly as they do their utmost to outwit this killjoy of a man who likes nothing more than to ensure everyone else's misery. Join the gang in their exploits to bring this guy to account and possibly even to redemption; a man who at first glance appears irredeemable.
If you enjoyed Mister Misery then why not try the author's previous novel, a fantasy called Lord of the Silver Hand. If it's out of stock with us, it can be purchased direct from the author - email@example.com.
Mister Misery by Gerald Killingworth
If you thought it was only children who moaned, It's not fair!' you would be very, very wrong. Adults do it all the time as well. Horace Truss had the world's most miserable childhood with the world's most miserable parents. And now he's out for revenge! But eleven year old Lucy and the 'gang' are on to him. Who will win the battle of wits and would anyone really dare to sabotage the school production of 'Alice, through the Looking Glass' in which Lucy stars? Whose side are you on in this outrageously funny story?
