The Serial Garden : The Complete Armitage Family Stories Paperback

Illustrated by Peter Bailey

Part of the VMC series



'I wish we'll have two children called Mark and Harriet. And I hope lots of interesting and unusual things will happen to them.

It would be nice if they had a fairy godmother, for instance. And a phoenix or something out of the ordinary for a pet.

We could have a special day for interesting and unusual things to happen - say, Mondays.

But not always Mondays, and not only Mondays, or that would get a bit dull' As a result of their mother's honeymoon wish, Mark and Harriet Armitage have a fairy godmother, a pet unicorn, and are prepared for anything life can throw at them (especially, but not always, on a Monday): hatching griffins in the airing cupboard, Latin lessons with a ghost, furious Furies on the doorstep, and an enchanted garden locked inside a cereal packet.

Life with the Armitages can be magical, funny, terrifying - but never, ever dull.
