As riotous an assembly of characters as ever filled a book! Gwen Grant's perceptive, worldly-wise narrator implicates her readers in a world of action, squabbles, falling in, falling out, harmony, discord and highly-charged fun. Her gift is such that we laugh with as well as at her characters. We feel part of the community, with Poison Ivy. Mavis the Mandrake,. Elvis and the Dead Beats. In private, Keep Out and Knock and Wait, the humour was sharper, the irony deeper, more suited to secondary readers. Here, middle to top juniors, too, can enjoy the camaraderie, 'reading as being in on the joke' with one of our most enjoyable storytellers.
