One of the best childrens books I have ever read!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Archer's Goon (Paperback)
If you like Diana Wynne Jones, read this. If you have never read any Diana Wynne Jones, start with this one.
Archer's Goon is the story of a teenage boy and his family who arrive home one day to see the title character sitting in their kitchen. The book chronicles the events that follow, from meeting the Goon's employer, Archer, and the rest of his dysfunctional family, to an explaination of why they have such an interest in Howard, and just how powerful words can be.
Readers of any age will love this book, it's witty, clever, and Howard's sister, Awful has to be one of the best characters ever written.
