Agatha is watching her second best show – ‘Sing Wiggle and Shine’, as Mum won’t allow her to watch her best one, ‘Celebrities at the Dentist’. And she is fully intent on following what happens until her older brother James switches channels for the football. The battle is on and Agatha engages in it with much vigour. The remote control is returned from her brother – but wait? Is it really returned? Brother has flung it at her, you see, as he will not be able to watch his game. Agatha uses that opportunity to manipulate things to her own end, which results in a hilarious sequence of events including a largely over decorated cake, a school fete and a raffle – not to mention her brother turning into a mushroom (so OK, fancy dress mushroom). Does everything end well for Agatha? Almost, but although her older brother underestimated her, her younger sister Saw What Really Happened with the remote… Younger children have found it hard to put down previous Agatha Parrot books, and having read this one, I can certainly see why. To be enjoyed by all fans of slapstick.
