Book Description

5 July 2012

Bliss! A lovely, quiet, nothing-to-do and nothing-on-the-calendar Sunday . . .

Well, that's until bossy Aunt Susan - an unstoppable force - is on the phone insisting that Harry and his family come down to help her a local event she's promised to organise: the Great Toadpool Show.

It means swinging from a trapeze. Or walking on stilts. Or riding a unicycle . . . And that's not counting the fortune-telling tent, the tombola, or the choir singalong.

Aunt Susan has no idea of the mayhem she's about to unleash.

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.

Review

"An enjoyable blend of adult knowingness and subversive silliness, enhanced by expert illustrations by Kate Aldous that fit the story scrupulously" (Sunday Times)

"Wickedly funny . . . Anne Fine is the kind of writer who creates great characters and puts them through their paces in scenes constructed so well you can't see the joins" (Tony Bradman Guardian)

Book Description

A hilarious tale of family fun from multi award-winning author Anne Fine.
