At long last, the first 'My Uncle Freddie' collection!,
This review is from: The Pineapple King of Jarrow and Other Stories (Paperback)
No it's not Alex Ferguson football manager, but the talented and prolific South Shields (Tyne and Wear) writer responsible for the six 'My Uncle Freddie' series on BBC Radio 4. This collection of short stories is exceptionally funny and entertaining, and is written with marvellous ease. Based on true events from the authors own childhood, it will transport you into the life of a 12 year old boy growing up in 1930's Jarrow accompanied by his resourceful and unconventional Uncle Freddie. A must-have for all ages, this book would make a wonderful present for anyone.
