Eating Things on Sticks

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

Publisher: Yearling

Having burned down the kitchen, Harry needs to be housed with a willing relative while it is rebuilt.

Faced with a week of Aunt Susan's nature walks, he blackmails Uncle Tristram into taking him away on holiday.

On a remote island off the coast of Scotland, Harry and Tristram find themselves stranded with a slightly eccentric girlfriend, a host of magnificent beards, very few trees, an abundance of circling helicopters, an angel, an awful lot of water and the promise of eating things on sticks at the end of the week.

A liberal sprinkling of pen and ink illustrations complement the humour and misunderstandings which give life to a multidimensional story featuring the Mountfield family of The More the Merrier fame.
