Awful Auntie

(5 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Harper Collins


Aunt Alberta is the most awful aunt who ever lived. She is a pipe-smoking, monocle-wearing monster with steel toe-capped boots on her feet and a fearsome giant owl on her arm.

Little Stella Saxby is the only person standing between Aunt Alberta and ownership of Saxby Hall - which means Stella is in serious trouble. As Aunt Alberta and the owl develop ever-more-evil plots to get rid of her, Stella must use cunning tricks and a rather spooky secret weapon to foil their plans.

A conversational writing style and plentiful black-and-white illustrations draw readers into the story from the very first page. Awful Auntie is rude, witty, irreverent, just a bit scary and fantastic fun.
