We've all got wacky families, it's just that some are wackier than others - find out how wacky in the fourth book of this hilarious series, My Uncle Gus the Garden Gnome.

Tom has the happiest family around. Dad is Senior Bogeyman for the entire east coast and Mum is First Assistant Tooth Fairy. Only Uncle Gus feels a professional failure - he's just a garden gnome. But when the Most Powerful Witch in the World puts a bad-luck spell on Tom, it's Uncle Gus - and Tom's friend Mog (who's a . well, no one is quite sure what Mog is, but he's large and hairy) - who put things right.

A hilarious story featuring sabre-toothed tigers, mad scientist teachers, magic carpets, and lots of fun and mayhem.
