Author(s): Peter Friend
In this ultimate portrait of childhood optimism and cheer, the narrator proceeds from chore to chore leaving a trail of destruction behind him, oblivious to his aunt's horror
Good intentions go awry as a polish here and a scrub-a-dub there culminates in a parakeet passing through a vacuum cleaner, a couple of floods, ice cream cake where there shouldn't be ice cream cake, and the promise of a return visit. A lovable character in the cheeky style of Dennis the Menace offers the sort of help that quickly becomes a hindrance, in this rollicking, energetic tale illustrated in a charming retro style.
