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.

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