The Eric Sykes Compendium is a bumper edition of three novels from the comedy genius: Smelling of Roses - Sparks and Miller are two ordinary soldiers desperate to avoid war who can hardly believe their bad luck when they hit the headlines as fullblown heroes. The Great Crime of Grapplewick - The sleepy northern town of Grapplewick is turned on its head when clueless criminals Terence and Rembrandt turn up seeking revenge. UFOs are Coming Wednesday - When a mysterious visitor demonstrates his amazing alien powers to the local dignitaries of Grapplewick, rumours fly and hysteria mounts. With characters and situations that are pure Sykes, this volume is a bundle of laughs.show more
