Crazy Times With Uncle Ken
Age Range: 9+ years
‘Uncle Ken was one of those people who went through life without having to do much, although a great deal seemed to happen around him.’
Who doesn’t like an eccentric uncle? Ruskin Bond certainly does. Whenever Uncle Ken arrives at Grandma’s house, and he does frequently, there is trouble afoot! Watch bumbling and endearing Uncle Ken stumble through the pages of this collection as he drives his car into a wall, is mistaken for a famous cricketer, troubled by a mischievous ghost, chased by a swarm of bees and attacked by flying foxes. Be it the numerous bicycle rides with the author or his futile attempts at finding a job, Uncle Ken’s misadventures provide huge doses of laughter.
A classic for readers old and new, Crazy Times with Uncle Ken returns with brand-new illustrations to reacquaint you with old friends, and will have you chuckling and doubling up by turns.
