£6.99

Bill Badger dreams of an adventure, despite opting for a safe, quiet life. Erring from a familiar path one night results in Bill’s capture by the odious, odorous McGloone sisters, and destined for ill-fitting satin shorts and a boxing match with three snarling dogs! Can our unlikely hero, Uncle Shawn, help little Bill, and the misled, lonely llamas held captive in a McGloone field, or are llama pies on the menu?

Few novelists are able to write capably for children, but A.L. Kennedy demonstrates creativity, and a respectful literacy in this book. Gemma Correll’s bold black line drawings support the menace of the setting, McGloone horror, and Uncle Shawn’s inventive courage. Wonderful! ‘ Uncle Shawn and Bill and the Almost Entirely Unplanned Adventure‘ is confident, laugh inducing, flag waving, lump in your throat, grand adventure story telling!
