I've previously read a book from Philip Ardagh's Eddie Dixon series and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was not disappointed with this one.

Ardagh writes for kids but this would be a fun read for adults. His writing reminds me of Roald Dahl. There can be bits that are a bit gorey, and parts that are tongue-in-cheek, but over all it is all good.

Fergal McNally's sister, Le Fay has won a place in the finals of the Tap 'n' Type typing competition. She gets to stay at posh The Dell Hotel in a swell suite. The trick is to figure a way for her siblings Jackie, his older sister, twins Joshua and Albie, and Fergal can stay with her. The room is only for her and her family is a bit on the poor side.

The start of the book is when Fergal falls out the window in the suite that Le Fay is staying in. It then back tracks and leads up to what all happens prior to Fergal's fall.

Characters like Twinkle-Toes Tweedy, the house detective, Mr. Peach, a venttrloquist, Graham Large, who is a competitor and wears his hair in a quiff and is a spoiled brat, and a few more characters make this an entertaining read. Also, when it gets to gorey parts the author lets you know so you can stop reading, and then lets you know when to start reading again. (See what I mean about Roald Dahl-esque style?)

I plan to read the other books in these two series...and any others by Ardagh that I find. ( )

Meet the McNally kids, Jackie, Josh, Albie, and Fergal in this darkly humorous book as they use whatever means necessary to travel cross country--all the while meeting the most unbelievable cast characters--to support their sister, LaFaye, as she vies for glory in the Tap 'n Type typing championship.

Marley was dead, to begin with. There is no doubt what ever about that. The register of his burial, was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Old Marley was as dead as a doornail. - from A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens

For Rebecca McNally. No relation. And for my long-departed Great Aunt Phyllis who gave me one of the greatest gifts of all and never even knew it. Thank you.
