The Barking Family Christmas by Edward Beedham


The Barking Family Christmas by Edward Beedham

The Lake District was peaceful - and then there was the Barking family ...Dad Barking is an inventor taking any opportunity to disappear into his shed to bash some new contraption together but in The Barking Family Christmas he will have to be at his inventive best. Evil is closing in on Christmas and only the Barking family stands in its way. The children, Napoleon, Wellington and Josephine hold the family together in spite of their father's dangerous genius and their mother's odd sense of humour; together with their pet rhino, Roger, they help to defeat an army of intelligent squirrels and chase runaway Christmas trees before turning their attention to the dark evil that is about to ruin every child's Christmas around the world. Inventive and often hilarious, The Barking Family Christmas will confound your sense of what is real and plunge you into the world of Dad Barking - enter if you dare ...

About the Author

Ed Beedham has been ten years old for 27 years now and would probably still be at school if someone hadn't told him he was an adult now. His book is not autobiographical - he has no home -made robots, more's the pity ... He says he wants to be the next J K Rowling. Though why he would want to be a blonde lady called Joanne is anybody's guess ...
