Horace and Glenda Pork-Fowler hav one an "all-you-can-eat" weekend at Eatum Hall - a dream come true for the pair for whom no plate is too big. However, their greed and desire to make the most of their luxurious surroundings distract them from the true purpose of why they are there! Ages 5+.
Shortlisted for Kate Greenaway Medal 2004.
Children will love to look in the background of the illustrations for clues as to what is really happening in this delightful mystery. (The Boston Herald) The glorious pictures let us see all the things they missed and how the story nearly had a very different ending! Very funny picture book, great to share with plenty to talk about. (Primary Times, October 2004)
