    DescriptionUnimaginably rich, invariably swathed in a magnificent purple dressing-gown, Uncle oversees a vast ramshackle castle full of friendly kooks while struggling to fend off the sneak attacks of the incorrigible Badfort Crowd. Each Uncle story introduces a new character from Uncle's madcap world, but for every delightful friend of Uncle, there is a foe who is no less deliriously wicked. Luckily the misbegotten schemes of the Badfort Crowd are no match for Uncle's superior wits. Quentin Blake's quirky illustrations are the perfect complement to J.P. Martin's stories, each one of a perfect length for bedtime reading. Lovers of Roald Dahl and William Steig will rejoice in Uncle's wonderfully bizarre and happy world, where the good guys always come out on top, and once a year, everybody, good and bad, sits down together for an enormous Christmas feast.

  • Wonderful Book5

    KBarber I loved this book as a child. It is an imaginative story enhanced by the illustrations of Q.Blake. I only wish the rest of the series was re-published, not just book 1 and 2. by KBarber

    The best, best, best book ever5

    Anna-Louise Brown This is a book I read over and over again as a child and even as an adult.
    It is so full of stimulus for the imagination and makes you want to design your dream city.

    I cannot recommend it more highly. by Anna-Louise Brown
