  • Wish I d had the cover shown here I was drinking a glass of water and nearly snorted it out of my nose It says something when a kids book from 1979 is funnier and erudite than anything published today It might not be my favourite instalment that would be Absolute Zero or Bagthorpes Unlimited but there s plenty to reduce you to giggles Daisy s Intimations of Mortality Phase, Mr Bagthorpe doing his own demented take on the Good Life, Billy Goat Gruff I ve never been sure about Great Aunt Lucy as [...]


  • Love this book One of the best out of the seven or eight Bagthorpe books Mr Bagthorpe goes unhinged and begins a campaign for survival, while Daisy Bagthorpe the four year old neice has become obsessed with funerals Add in the lunatic Aunt Lucy who doesn t believe in Time , and you have the makings for a classic Bagthorpian comedy.


  • Though I love the Bagthorpes Saga I thought that this episode tend to reduce the characters to clich s and was slightly redondant with the other episodes, of course it s still very funny, but i sort of longed to discover others sides to the characters


  • I love these so much I ve read the first four all four times each, including aloud to my daughter it seemed to be a lesser known series in the US, which is too bad the language is pretty sophisticated and the books are HILARIOUS the characters are fantastic.


  • Can the Bagthorpes become self sufficient By that, of course, they mean saving money on everyone else s pleasures, but not their own And can they keep Great Aunt Lucy happy when she comes to visit


  • With money troubles causing the family to become self sufficient, competitiveness is at a high as the Bagthorpes try to grow their own food, with disastrous results At this stage the series is a little weaker, but still quite enjoyable.


  • More madcap hijinks and Daisy related destruction Not quite as scattered as the third book, but still not quite tied together as well as the second book Quite amusing, regardless.
