Dreadful Acts (Eddie Dickens Trilogy Series #2) by Philip Ardagh, David Roberts

Ah, life is never easy for Eddie Dickens. In this brave and hearty installment of the Eddie Dickens Trilogy, he narrowly avoids being blown up, trampled by horses, hit by a hot-air balloon, and arrested - only to find himself falling heels over head for a girl with a face like a camel's. He also falls into the hands of a murderous gang of escaped convicts. They have "a little job" for him to do. All the old favorites are here - including Mad Uncle Jack and Malcolm (or it is Sally?) the stuffed stoat - along with some worrying-looking new ones. A good time will be had by all. Except Eddie.

About the Author

Philip Ardagh is over six feet seven inches tall with a big bushy beard. Not only is he very large and very hairy, but he has also written around sixty children’s books for all ages. Currently a full-time writer living with a wife and two cats in a seaside town somewhere in England, he has been—among other things—an advertising copywriter, a hospital cleaner, a (highly unqualified) librarian, and a reader for the blind.

David Roberts is so busy drawing pictures that no one is really sure what he looks like. We do know that he has illustrated several books for children and lives somewhere in England, but whether his home is near the sea or not is anybody’s guess.
