Product Description

Review

"Anne Fine's acerbic take on life often assumes a level of sophistication in her young readers. Insights into the emotional lives of grown ups can appeal to children and the misunderstandings that surround Harry and Tristram's trip create comic situations that make the readers, for once, the knowing ones" (Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times)

"Family relationships come under close scrutiny in this book, which is ideal for the summer holidays" (The Bookseller)

"A lively, witty, rain-drenched tale full of big beards, from one of our best children's writers" (Daniel Hahn Independent on Sunday)

"This is a most enjoyable book" (Mary Arrigan Irish Examiner)

"This is Anne Fine at her hilarious best" (Wendy Cooling Child Education)

Book Description

A hilarious tale of a holiday week on a remote British island - where the highlight of the week is the annual Fair with its Eating Things on Sticks competition

More About the Author

Anne Fine leads a double life as an author. Of her eight novels for adult readers, she describes seven as black comedies and the first, The Killjoy, as simply 'dead black'. These adult novels cause readers to squirm with mingled horror and delight as she peels away the layers in all too familiar family relationships, exposing the tangled threads and conflicts beneath. It's therefore perhaps not surprising that Anne has openly expressed astonishment at the fact that murder in the domestic setting is not more common.
A great favourite for discussions in reading groups, Anne Fine's work has been published in over forty-five languages. Despite this, she remains best known in her home country, Britain, as a writer principally for children. She has twice won both the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Awards, the Guardian Children's Book Prize and numerous other prizes and awards. She was the second Children's Laureate from 2001-3, is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, and was awarded an OBE for services to children's literature.
Anne Fine is an entertaining and engaging speaker on the subject of books and reading, and is in demand the world over for her tireless enthusiasm, common sense approach to literacy, and for the deliciously wicked humour that permeates all her writing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Eating things on sticks 27 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback
I read a rave review of this book in the Week and the suggested reading age was 5 -8. I thought this was too old for the bright 5 year old I planned to give it to. I read the book and it was quite amusing, but the story wasn't that gripping, so I have only given it 3 stars. I think it would appeal to slightly older children, but as I am keeping it to give to my older grandson for Christmas, I can't comment on a child's reation.
