Children Ages 8+ • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

Ardagh reintroduces Eddie Dickens (no relation to Charles) and the motley gang from his previous work, A HOUSE CALLED AWFUL. Eddie is up to his usual antics as he narrowly averts disaster dealing with his troublesome relatives, such as Mad Uncle Jack, and the equally riotous friends he makes along the way in Victorian England. Martin Rayner keeps Ardagh's sprightly work lively as he delivers puns, author asides, and jokes aplenty. In addition to enjoying a nutty story, young listeners will add to their vocabularies by listening to words used and defined within the story. Also, quite cleverly, Listening Library notes that a glossary from the book can be found on its Web site. The perfect learning tool. S.G.B.
