About this book
A children's novel, from a highly promotable author, which Faber have extremely high hopes for. It is described as "a surreal and ridiculous pseudo-Dickensian adventure novel, perfect for 8 - 12 year olds who enjoy subversive humour". There are also lively illustrations by David Roberts, who did "The Boy Who Kicked Pigs". Readership level: 8 - 12.
When both of Eddie Dickens' parents catch a disease that makes them turn yellow, go a bit crinkly round the edges and smell of hot water bottles, it's agreed he should go and stay with relatives at their house Awful End.
