Aunt Effie and Mrs Grizzle
Subject: Junior Fiction
‘When you’ve saved your country from bankruptcy, and the Prime Minister says you’re her dearest friends, you don’t feel much like going back to school on Monday.’
Here we are happily reunited with Aunt Effie, her twenty-six nieces and nephews and six enormous pig dogs, Caligula, Nero, Brutus, Kaiser, Genghis and Boris. At every opportunity, the capricious Aunt Effie takes to her beloved bed, and enchants us all with tall tales of beguiling proportions.
Enter Mrs Grizzle, a red-haired, doublejointed, magician. Nothing is as it seems, and we encounter edible gunpowder, monster pukekos, Pookackodiles and Krockapooks, and is this a removable glass eye? How will Aunt Effie wrap up the captivating story of Mrs Grizzle? And where is the lost treasure?
Ideal for reading aloud, this deliciously wicked romp with Aunt Effie and her crew is guaranteed to entertain and astonish.
