Horrendous Habits by Philip Ardagh
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In this, the second of his Further Adventures, Eddie Dickens is unaware that he is, Eddie Dickens, that is. Following a nasty accident, he's lost his memory, believing himself to be someone called Neddy (which is actually the name of the baby he and Even Madder Aunt Maud found in the bulrushes). Taken in by monks with appalling dress sense - hence the title - he's also forgotten that his father, Mr Dickens, has been the victim of his own accident (a fallen chimney pot). Things are further confused by the not-so-famous engineer Fandango Jones's suspicions of skulduggery and foul play.

Author Biography

Over two metres tall with a bushy beard, Philip Ardagh has written over 60 books for all ages. Not only is he very knowledgeable about serious subjects but he also writes very funny books that make lots of people laugh.

Unlikely Exploits is another series, the first one of which is called The Fall of Fergal with Heir of Mystery following that. He also writes expertly compiled and researched non-fiction, The Archaeologist's Handbook, Why Are Castles Castle-Shaped?, Did Dinosaurs Snore? and The Hieroglyphs Handbook.
