"It all really began...on the day my Aunt Rosamund's door handle went missing."
And so begins the narrative of Clod Iremonger. This book has such strange things as birth objects, rogue seagulls, an ostrich that may or may not be living in the house, dark secrets, a forest of chimneys, and myriad of strange cousins. It's dark, funny, and highly imaginative. It's also quite creepy and perfect for this Halloween season.
