Interest Age 7-12 Reading Age 7+  Award-winning Anne Fine always writes brilliantly about annoying family members. Ian’s Uncle Ron has a habit of just turning up on the doorstep with a big suitcase. No one knows how long he will stay but while he’s in the house he talks a lot to his spirit friends from ‘the other side’.  Ian’s Mum and Dad don’t have many ideas about how to get rid of him so now it is Ian’s turn to find a solution. His newly arrived neighbour Hetty is the perfect accomplice for a cunning plan which sees Uncle Ron leaving for more quickly than had been expected.

The Haunting of Uncle Ron Synopsis

Light-hearted comedy from an award-winning author. When Uncle Ron comes to visit, he just won't seem to leave! Ian, Mum and Dad don't quite know what do with him - if he's not eating them out of house and home, he's chattering away to the spirits of the dead. But not interesting spirits. All they ever seem to talk about is the colour of doors and what's stuck behind the fridge. So Ian hatches a plan to get rid of Uncle Ron once and for all!

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 7+
