My Feelings:

When Eddie Dickens's parents go yellow, crinkly around the edges and smell of old hot-water bottles, he's sent away to live with Mad Uncle Jack, Even Madder Aunt Maud and her stuffed stoat called Malcolm ...
And so begins a series of outrageous adventures involving escaped convicts, missing jewels, cucumber-waving orphans, and a hollow cow called Marjorie.

My Review:
There are three books in The Eddie Dickens trilogy, Awful End, Dreadful Acts & Terrible Times. And all three of them are hilarious & awesome.

The characters are fabulous and middle graders will adore all of them. Eddie is the main character and he’s so sweet. He’s very caring and likes adventures. Mad Uncle Jack and his wife Madder Aunt Maud are crazy. Seriously, insane, but very funny in their actions. Eddie is also very patient, because I would lose my wits around Madder Aunt Maud. Eddie’s parents don’t play a big role in the first book, but I quite like them. They are both just as insane as the uncle and aunt.

All three of the adventures are fantastic & some scenes are laugh out loud funny. It was impossible to put the book down, even for a couple of minutes.

If you like middle grade books, read The Eddie Dickens trilogy
