Odd things happen to Archie every day. Some very odd things. On Monday, a piano rolls down the hill and traps his new friend Cyd in her mum’s car. And then a truck tips a load of gravel on top of it. But don’t worry—she’s ok. Actually, Cyd finds it exciting though of course, she doesn’t believe that this sort of thing happens to Archie every day—until they find themselves trapped in a house with a sedated lion trainer, and a very awake lion. Poor Archie! But as he soon discovers, if odd things have to happen to him, it’s a lot better if they happen when Cyd’s around.
Join Archie and Cyd for a whole week’s worth of completely surprising and outrageously funny escapades.
Starred Review, Booklist, March 1, 2012: “Superb comic timing….readers will be vastly entertained by Archie’s misadventures.”
