The Eddie Dickens Trilogy by Philip ArdaghThis is a hilarious trilogy where Philip Ardagh introduces us to Eddie Dickens and his crazy family, his parents, Mad Uncle Jack and Even Madder Aunt Maud with her stuffed stoat called Malcolm. The three books are Awful End, Dreadful Acts and Terrible Times, all of which can be read individually without depending on the other, but there are references to earlier events so to read all three in the right order is the best approach! Ardagh talks as narrator to the reader throughout the trilogu so there is plenty of scope for discussing the writing of novels and role of narrator. The books are very funny; he takes events in unexpected directions. These are excellent books for expanding the imagination, being creative, following crazy routes of thought. Alongside this there is extensive and skilled wordplay - Ardagh tackles many features of language in a playful way thats easy to engage with. It would be easy to explore the origins of words, different meanings of words and sayings with these stories. He also introduces all sorts of themes which would be fun to follow up - the origin of policeman, the fire brigade, Daltons disease and so on and so on.
