Synopsis

The Revenge Files of Alistair Fury: Dead Dad Dog by Jamie Rix

Alistair is fed up at being treated like a slave while the rest of the family is ill. Not even lacing his brother and sister's medicine with washing-up liquid gets him off nursing duties! He's still busy trying to hatch the perfect plot for revenge when they're all dragged off to Ireland for a family funeral. Soon, Alistair's plans are full of spooks, spirits and bones. But his brother and sister have similar ideas . . . ! In lively and accessible diary form, this is a story of family life at its funniest, packed with schoolboy humour.

Reviews

The problems that go with being a younger sibling are well documented but Jamie Rix's take on the phenomenon is to appeal straight to the heart and humour of the matter -- Lindsey Fraser * Scotsman * A hilarious series . . . Stand-up comedy in book form * TES * If you've not come across this series, get ready for a severe injection of unconventionality. . . Jilts from random thought to comic memory * Junior * Hilarious * Reading Evening Post * Accompanied by fun illustrations throughout, this series is a real find as a strong male narrator is a rare thing indeed * writeaway.org.uk *
