Auden, Benjamin Britten and Spike Milligan. From 1994-1996 he directed the Cheltenham Festival of Literature and for many years he ran a young people's drama group, the Mushy Pea Theatre Company.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun way to encourage reading 13 Oct 2010
Bought this for my grandaughter's 8th birthday and she loved it. It was her first Mr. Majeika book and she now wants to read more of them. She is a competent reader and devours books so it's good to find a series new to her, and to wean her off the Rainbow Fairy books! The story is great fun and there are plenty of black and white illustrations to lighten the text. Probably ideal for readers too old for the Horrid Henry series - and for children learning music at school!
