From the creator of the best-selling Eddie Dickens trilogy comes Book One of his darkly hilarious new trilogy, charting the extraordinary changes in fortunes of the down-trodden McNally family. The setting is an unidentified country, suffering from an unexpected outbreak of very large holes. The McNally children find themselves in The Dell hotel surrounded by a strange assortment of ridiculous characters ranging from Charlie 'Twinkle Toes' Tweedy, the house detective, to Mr Peach, a ventriloquist with a conveniently large moustache.
