It is nothing of the kind, Laura,’ Mr Bagthorpe replied testily

It is nothing of the kind, Laura,’ Mr Bagthorpe replied testily. I imagine it is the jackbooted thugs from the Inland Revenue. I have been expecting them for some time. Even Jack, who, as the only one of the younger Bagthorpes who was capable of any great degree of empathy often felt sorrier for his father than he perhaps deserved, was tempted to get in a few digs of his own. He came in for quite a lot of Mr Bagthorpe’s literary snobbishness by dint of having perfectly ordinary taste for a boy his age, after all. In the shorter term, however, the Bagthorpes came together, as nearly as one as could reasonably be expected of such a contentious clan.

As always with the Bagthorpes, a fun time was had by all and I enjoyed the short relief of Cresswell's humor in my life! Oh how I wish I could live with this family for a bit longer and if more books would be forthcoming, I could. I will need to re-read the set in a year or two for another short, fun, digression from reality.

Every book in the Bagthorpe Saga makes me laugh out loud. When I knew I was going to be laid up recovering from surgery, I ordered four out of the five (or is it six?) of Cresswell's Bagthorpe books. Summarizing any of them is impossible because the plots are so many, so thickly intertwined, and the result, along with being too long altogether, would be like telling a joke badly. Big hint: the only ordinary characters in the book provide the point of view for the reader. Good for adults as well as 12 year olds who can appreciate how funny self-absorbed people can be.
