Badger Bill loves his best friend Uncle Shawn. But he has started to notice that Uncle Shawn is a bit unusual.

Dr P’Klawz hates Uncle Shawn. He has also noticed that Uncle Shawn is a bit unusual – pajimminy crimminy unusual, in fact.

It looks like Badger Bill is going to need a plan, or Uncle Shawn might be sent to the Institution for Maximum Security and Unusualness Curing for ever. But all Bill has to help him are four bickering llamas, one pirate boy and one invisible girl. What could possibly go wrong?

Review new 2021

Uncle Shawn and Badger Bill are back in their second full-length novel that is full of laugh-out-loud moments. The Llamas are back this time too. You can read about their first adventure from our review – Here

There’s someone prowling around the town and he doesn’t like things that are unusual. Evil Dr P’Klawz has been going around town putting up posters asking people to report things of unusualness. He pops up everywhere and is watching everyone. You might think that Llamas are a bit unusual, especially ones that eat jam out of the jar, or that a talking Badger is unusual.
However, the evil doctor has his sights firmly set on Uncle Shawn.

If you have not read the first book and this one works well as a standalone, you won’t know that it was Uncle Shawn doing the rescuing, now in the second book he’s the one that needs rescuing. I love how A. L. Kennedy has gone full circle.

The chapters are quite short and like in the first book they give you information at the start as to what will happen in that section. Throughout there are also comic book style black and white illustrations that make this humorous book even funnier.

For children who like silly stories that will give them the giggles this book is perfect. It’s full of wacky moments but with the message about the powers of friendship running throughout. It’s a lovely book that I am sure will keep children engaged and interested from start to finish.
