Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 12/28/2013

    " First in the Bagthorpe Saga series. Jack is frustrated by his ultra-talented and boastful siblings. Prompted by his sympathetic uncle he embarks on a new career... calamities ensure, as is the norm in the chaotic Bagthorpe household. Fast-paced and well-written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/16/2013

    " Kind of fun, a couple of outrageous laugh-out-loud scenes. A pretty decent kid has to deal with a self-proclaimed brilliant family (meaning they're all self-absorbed attention-seekers). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Farida | 4/7/2013

    " If you like stories about noisy, brilliant English families a la Hillary McKay's Saffy's Angel et al, you'll probably enjoy this book as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginger | 1/3/2013

    " Full of wacky characters. Amusing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jrobertus | 11/8/2012

    " You gotta love the Bagthorpes. This hyper competitive English family has many hilarious adventures. The stories, although often silly, have a measure of everyman in them and the foibles are also presented with wit and good nature. "

    " As a relatively normal third child of four in a family of rather extraordinary people, I definitely identified with Jack.

    Cresswell really has a handle on characters, and writes them to the point of almost absurd, without crossing over. Funny, ridiculous, and endlessly entertaining. "
