Publisher's Summary

Philip Ardagh's Unlikely Exploits chart the extraordinary changes in fortune of the downtrodden McNally family beginning with The Fall of Fergal. The setting is an unidentified country suffering from an unexpected breakout of large holes.

The McNally children find themselves in The Dell Hotel, the venue for the final of the Tap 'n' Type typing competition, surrounded by a strange assortment of characters ranging from Twinkle-Toes Tweedy, the house detective, to Mr. Peach, a ventriloquist with a very large moustache.

With young Fergal McNally falling to his death at the very beginning, the only way for the McNallys is up.

    "absolutely brilliant"

    Philip Ardagh has done it again with this fantastic audio book. Told in his trademark chatty style, The Fall of Fergal is full of ridiculous characters - dastardly, daring and debonair - and the action rollicks along at a terrific pace right to the end (or is it?), with plenty of surprises along the way. Listen to it, and you're in for a 'hole' lot of fun.

    "Great for 8-12 years olds"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Both my son and daughter loved the story line and looking forward to the second book.


    What about Joe Barrett’s performance did you like?

    Characterisations were really good.

    "Comedy Noir"

    The first book of the horrible, hilarious happenings to the McNally children.

    I purchased this for my 10-year old nephew, a huge fan of the "Series of Unfortunate Events" books. He loves it and can't wait to get the next one. He is hoping Fergal will be reanimated in some way, but adored all the squishy description of his sad demise.

    I also listened to this one on my MP3 and am not such a fan of the "Unfortunated Events" series. I laughed out loud so often I was asked to leave several rooms by different family members.

    Highly recommended, though not for the emotionally sensitive or easily grossed out.
