Comic tales of a young boy and his not-so-ordinary adventures
Young Eric’s world is changing – his mum is about to marry his teacher, aka The Bodge, and alarmingly Auntie Rosie has sent a special present from South America. Eric has had some unusual experiences with his auntie’s gifts in the past and is very alarmed about this one, particularly when he discovers what the present - a fertility symbol – actually is! His efforts to find and dispose of it lead to typically comic and unforeseen circumstances, and everyone breathes a sigh of relief when his mum finally gets to walk down the aisle. These stories are perfect for newly confident readers who will completely get the fact that they know more than Eric about what’s going on, and will find so much to make them laugh too.
Eric's mum is getting married - to his teacher! If that wasn't bad enough, Auntie Rose has sent a wedding present from her travels, and its magical properties might make Mum have a new baby. Eric definitely doesn't want that, so he and his best friend Wez decide to open all the presents to find it before Mum does. But the magic gift soon proves more troublesome than Eric could have possibly thought . . .
