I searched for years for this in bookshops and was delighted to see it re-released last year. I recommend everyone to read this book at least once; the magic will stay with you.
They are unimaginable without Quentin Blake's amazing illustrations, they are a goldmine and a treasure trove for young imaginations - and are every bit as brilliant as A.A. Milne or Trevor Elliston's Deep Wood. How someone hasn't set about republishing the set or creating an animation (hands off Disney - this would be a travesty if it was anything other than true to the original) beats me.
I do not know of any reader who once introduced to these beloved characters does not instantly devour them all. Buy them all - demand that these volumes are brought back to life- read them to your kids and so ensure that future generations will also love them. J.P.Martin's name should reside with the greats of C.S.Lewis and Kenneth Grahame.
Jonathan Cape managed to turn down Animal Farm - and then it let Uncle go out of print. How dippy can you get? Come on Random House - pull your finger out!
If you've enjoyed Harry Potter, Artemis Fowl or Viz comic, buy an Uncle book and be prepared to have a new favourite.
Totally fabulous series of books, great and strange characters and a peculiar world not so different from our own.
Re-reading after thirty years and they are still totally engaging. Buy them for the kids and for yourself!!
Highly recommended for kids around 7 and upwards, though I've read it to my younger children as well.

A reprint of a well-loved family favourite. The Uncle series has great charm, enthralls small boys.Published 17 months ago by jayjo
Just love the wackiness of it all, and the lack of any boundaries of where Uncle can take you. Loved it as a child and doesn't disappoint many years later.Published on 10 Mar. 2014 by stephen huggins
I used to read this book to my daughters, to rapt silence or squeals of delight. Somehow over the years my copy vanished from my shelves. Read morePublished on 29 Sept. 2012 by F. Barnard
