Synopses & Reviews
Paperback edition of the first title in the "Unlikely Exploits" trilogy, which charts the beleaguered lives of the downtrodden McNally family, including the eponymous Fergal, who falls to his death on page one. The only way is up! Ardagh is now well established as a major children's author, and this title, alongside "Terrible Times", should be a huge seller this Christmas.
The setting is an unidentified country, suffering from an unexpected outbreak of very large holes. The McNally children find themselves in The Dell hotel surrounded by a strange assortment of ridiculous characters ranging from Charlie "Twinkle Toes", to Tweedy, the house detective.
