There are so many intertwined and interconnected depths in these tales where the characters take on almost real human identity that if you let your imagination free you will certainly go mad but in a pleasant way.
Tuppence the lamb has now become a menace with his gang of rats and has retreated into the tunnels beneath the Outcrop where he is stealing electricity from the Fulmars to drive his prog rock band.
Tuppy has enough of Dr Wilson’s warnings about Swine flu and the obesity dangers of eating fudge doughnuts and he and Geoffrey set off for St Kilda. Blown off course they end up on Flannan Isle and are trapped there by Tuppence who steals their boat. They get rescued and return only to try and escape to Cuba, once again they are blown off course and end up in Greenland and dragged into the ‘Christmas spending fever’.
There are lashings of Purple Peril cocktails, a meth and Madeira mixture and lots of salty snacks with the act of blowing up of crisp packets and bursting them in the Puff Inn. As well as lashings of satirical fun about eco warriors living in Yurts, tourists dropping their litter of snuff movies, second homes and expenses and 62 inch televisions on which they watch the Eurovision Song contest and Britain’s got Talent. Of course there are the never-ending poke at unhealthy living and warnings from Dr Wilson who lives on seaweed.
The conflict with the Baby Orca, a killer whale determined to have revenge on Tuppy for killing its mother continues.Read more ›
This needs to be read to be appreciated. I started with this one but am now wanting to read the full series. Kate Smart is a tremendous writer with an imagination that could not be surpassed.
