As self-appointed Guardian of Otherhand Castle, Edgar's alarmed when a nasty looking black tail slinks off under the rhubarb plants, kitchen maids go missing and the castle begins to flood.
There's never a dull moment for the strange Otherhand family; Lord Valevine, Minty his wife, 10-year-old Cudweed; his pet, Fellah (the sticky monkey); and his big sister, black-haired, gothic-ly gorgeous Solstice, as they come face to face with the owner of the black tail.
I have the first three books in this series and have listened over and over. I adore Edgar ! ! !
I keep hoping the next three in the series will be out in audio. Clever premise and Martin Jarvis is the perfect narrator.
