Uncle Shawn and Bill and the Pajimminy Crimminy Unusual Adventure

£6.99

There was a slight tug of war when Uncle Shawn and Bill and the Pajimminy- Crimminy Unusual Adventure arrived at Bookwagon Central. A.L. Kennedy’s satirical prequel introducing the wild and woolly characters of Pandrumdroochit, Uncle Shawn and Bill and the Almost Entirely Unplanned Adventure, has been a huge and deserved Bookwagon hit.

Pandrumdroochit is visited by Dr P’Clawz. There are many homemade certificates demonstrating his  medical training and authority in The Institution for Maximum Security of Unusualness Curing. Dr P’Clawz has paint on hair, teeth that screech and shins that itch whenever he encounters anything unusual. Uncle Shawn is unusual, as are Badger Bill and the bickering llamas on the farm above the bay of Pandrumdroochit. Uncle Shawn suspects Dr P’Clawz’s authenticity. He is determined to prove that being unusual is a blessing, nothing to be feared or eradicated.

‘Uncle Shawn and Bill and the Pajimminy- Crimminy Unusual Adventure’ is a wise, wonderful, witty and winning title. I galumphed it down in one reading, laughing like a drain, which probably would condemn me to a Dr P’Clawz institution. Bookwagon urges readers of all ages to take up this title, and its prequel, and enjoy Uncle Shawn, Bill and the wild, woolly world of Pandrumdroochit.
