Description:
Laugh-out-loud family mystery story from well-known children's poet.

Wilf and his family have moved to the seaside to start a new life by opening a run-down cafe. But for his parents it's all too much, and quite separately they decide to take a break from the family and leave, not realising that the other has also left. So Wilf and his four younger sisters, home alone, decide to renovate the cafe as a surprise for their parents' return. But ghostly sounds in the house, a parade of oddball and inquisitive visitors and the mysterious connections between the cafe's previous owner and the local art gallery complicate their efforts enormously. As Will's superhero comic characters take shape on the cafe's walls, covering the fat ladies which previously decorated it, the children's attempts to hide their parentless state slowly unravel, leading to a dramatic turn of events on the day they open the cafe to the public. Packed with humorous characters and witty dialogue, this is a very funny and intriguing mystery story.
If you like Hilary McKay' Casson Family series or Lemony Snickett's books you'll love The Comic Café. ...
