Reviews for The Complete Uncle
A beautiful book, and a dream come true!
I read some of the “Uncle” books as a child in the early 1970s, and sought copies of them as an adult, with very limited success. I therefore subscribed to the Kickstarter campaign to fund this omnibus volume as soon as I read of it - the first crowdfunding project I’ve ever supported.
In a nice bit of timing my copy arrived on Christmas Eve , and it certainly didn’t disappoint. The book itself is a handsome, sturdy hardback volume with high quality paper and crisp clear printing – particularly of Quentin Blake’s wonderful illustrations, which I feel are some of his best work. This is certainly not your average mass-market product, yet it retails at a bargain price. You get six whole novels here, folks, all for a miniscule fraction of what you’d pay for any one of them on the second-hand market.
Highly recommended to any lovers of classic, offbeat children’s fantasy - regardless of what age you are! If you ever read any “Uncle” and haven’t yet ordered this book – what are you waiting for? Oh, and three thousand cheers for Marcus Gipps, the mastermind behind this project He has done a magnificent job on what has clearly been a labour of love – well done! by Mark Cannon
