Book Description

17 May 2007
A box set containing books featuring Eddie Dickens - "Dubious Deeds", "Horrendous Habits" and "Final Curtain".

Dubious Deeds
The pint-sized hero of the best-selling Eddie Dickens Trilogy is back in Dubious Deeds, the first of his Further Adventures, and this time he's many miles from home. In this ridiculous tale of deceit and double-dealing, Eddie Dickens is away from Awful End in the highly unlikely highlands of Victorian Scotland. He finds himself amongst a group of vegetarian strangers living in Even Madder Aunt Maud's Scottish ancestral pile; embroiled in a plot that could rock the very foundations of the British monarchy; and in danger of being late for his tea.

Horrendous Habits
After a serious accident involving a gorse bush, Eddie Dickens finds himself being cared for by monks of the Bertian order, founded by Ethelbert the Funny, and with absolutely no memory of who he is. Back at Awful End, he leaves behind a baby discovered in the bulrushes, his father flattened by a chimney in what was probably a deliberate act, and the fairly well-known engineer Fandango Jones playing detective. With more surprises than a bag full of them, Horrendous Habits embraces a whole host of new characters along with firm favourites such as Malcolm the stuffed stoat. ‘This author is a national treasure’ Independent ‘Philip Ardagh has created his very own style of storytelling.’ Michael Rosen

Final Curtain
In this, the third and final of The Further Adventures of Eddie Dickens, our saucer-eyed hero Eddie Dickens finds himself embroiled in an attempt to foil a plot to steal an oil painting of Mad Uncle Jack, mistakenly commissioned by the War Office (who thought he was the other Major Dickens). Add to this the explosive mix of Even Madder Aunt Maud and Annabelle, the baby pet crocodile she now leads around on a silver chain; Dr Samuel Moot, besotted by Maud since a young man, having once shot Mad Uncle Jack (twice) in a duel; Gherkin a professional dwarf; Eddie's Uncle Alfie and surfeit of heather; and all the usual suspects (including Malcolm, of course) . . . and you're in for another slice of the ridiculous served up in the way that only Ardagh can.

He finds himself amongst a group of vegetarian strangers living in mad Aunt Maud's ancestral pile. Arriving to the highlands aboard the Tatan Tiger, he's plunged into a landowner dispute,comes face to face with HM Victoria, gets bitten by sheep & don't forget Malcom the stuffed stoat.

Book two - Horrendous Habits
After a serious accident involving a gorse bush, Eddie Dickens finds himself being cared for by monks of the Bertian order, founded by Ethelbert the Funny, and with absolutely no memory of who he is. Back at Awful End, he leaves behind a baby discovered in the bulrushes, his father flattened by a chimney in what was probably a deliberate act, and the fairly well-known engineer Fandango Jones playing detective. With more surprises than a bag full of them, Horrendous Habits embraces a whole host of new characters along with firm favourites such as Malcolm the stuffed stoat. There's skulduggary & foul play.
