Okay.. this book is so stuffed with so many events! At some point I wasn't able to keep track of all those characters, I had to go back some lines or sometimes pages to know who is who. All in all Dickens will always be of my favorite books... I would like to add that my favorite of the Further Adventures is probably Horrendous Habbits.
It was a fun adventure -reading all six Eddie Dickens adventures.
Time to move on.. to read more and more..

This is another humorous adventure in the Eddie Dickens saga. I loved the way that Ardagh brought in characters from his other books.

Ein schönes letztes Abenteuer mit Eddie, das diesmal wirklich viele alte und neue Charaktere einführt, was mich - wenn ich nicht allzu aufmerksam gelesen habe - ein bisschen verwirrt hat.
Ganz toll ist, dass die noch wahnsinnigere Tante Maud ein neues Haustier bekommt, das leider viel zu wenig auftaucht.
Mein ganzer Respekt gilt Harry Rowohlt, der es immer wieder schafft diese schier unübersetzbaren Bücher so gut wie möglich ins Deutsche zu übertragen.
Once again, much as I love Ardagh's style and asides, they became a bit too much in this one, making the overall story--and even the jokes--take longer than necessary at times.

That being said, you can't argue with the playfulness and fun of these books. Even if he becomes overindulgent at times, it still makes for a fun read. If and when more of Eddie's adventures come to light, I will definitely be there to read them.

Over six-and-a-half feet tall, with a bushy beard,Philip Ardagh is not only very big but also very hairy. He is the author of the Eddie Dickens Trilogy and when not writing silly books, Mr. Ardagh is quite serious and frowns a great deal. He lives in a seaside town somewhere in England with his wife and their son, Fred.
