Aunt Effie and Mrs Grizzle
Aunt Effie and Mrs Grizzle
Lasenby, Jack

Wonderful, funny junior fiction for children from talented storyteller Jack Lasenby. Ideal for reading aloud, this deliciously wicked romp with Aunt Effie and her crew is guaranteed to entertain and astonish. At every opportunity, the capricious Aunt Effie takes to her beloved bed, and enchants her twenty-six nieces and nephews and six enormous pig dogs with tall tales of beguiling proportions. Enter Mrs Grizzle, a red-haired, doublejointed magician. Nothing is as it seems, and we encounter edible gunpowder, monster pukekos, Pookackodiles and Krockapooks, and is this a removable glass eye? How will Aunt Effie wrap up the captivating story of Mrs Grizzle? And where is the lost treasure?
