The Not-So-Very-Nice-Goings-On at Victoria Lodge by Philip Ardagh
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Whilst flipping through issues of The Girl's Own Paper from the 1890s, it gradually dawned on Philip Ardagh that he was witnessing tantalising glimpses of a mystery story unfolding in the seemingly-unrelated illustrations. Using these originals and his brand-spanking-new text, he's created the quite extraordinary (and very funny) The Not-So-Very-Nice Goings-On at Victoria Lodge. Following in the grand tradition of E. V. Lucas and George Morrow's 1911 book What A Life! based on a (heavily doctored) Whiteley's store catalogue, and those caption competitions you used to find in the back of Punch, Victoria Lodge is destined to become an immediate family favourite in houses (and flats) across the nation.
