A weird and wonderful Gothic mystery told from a raven’s-eye view! At Otherhand Castle, can Edgar the faithful raven save his human family as cellars flood, kitchen-maids vanish, and a dark beast prowls? Edgar is alarmed when he sees a nasty-looking black tail slinking under the castle walls. But his warnings to the Otherhand family go unheeded. Lord Valevine is far too busy trying to invent the unthinkable and discover the unknowable. His wife, Minty, is absorbed in her obsession with baking, while ten-year-old Cudweed is running riot with his infernal pet monkey. Only Solstice, the black-haired, poetry-writing Otherhand daughter, pays any attention. But as the lower storeys of the castle mysteriously flood and kitchen-maids continue to go missing, the family are coming ever closer to the dreadful owner of the black tail…
“Told from the bird’s eye view of a resident raven, this is a deliciously topsy-turvy comedy full of unusual details.” Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading4kids.com
“As funny and twisted as the members of the Otherhand family themselves… You’ll laugh when you read this book – a lot.” Trappedbymonsters.com
“Told with extraordinary wit and razor sharp repartee; Edgar is a comical genius.” Thetruthaboutbooks.com
“I’ve lost count of how many times I had to put it down because I was laughing so much, but lets just say it was a lot!” Wondrousreads.com
