There’s something special about Eddie Albert and that is he can understand and talk to animals. He keeps it a secret of course, but even so it’s got him into scrapes at school (he was rescuing a trapped seagull) plus the other kids think there’s something not quite right about him. When he’s sent to stay with his wealthy Aunt Budge in Amsterdam then, imagine his surprise to discover that she can do it too. His holiday gets even more exciting when he spots a kidnapped orangutan that desperately needs help. With his new friend, Flo, plus his pets Butch the dog and Bunty the hamster, Eddie sets out to rescue the creature. The adventures that follow are funny, lively and feature a fabulous cast of characters including one of the best villainesses since Cruella de Vil. The author’s love for animals shines through and Butch and Bunty provide many of the best moments. There are black and white illustrations by Sue Hellard throughout, an extra treat, lovely sketches of the setting and our heroes, the two and the four-legged ones.

I have watched some of Paul O'Grady's animal programmes so I was excited when I saw this book by him. It's a great story about a boy called Eddie who can talk to animals. Along with his other pets, they get into an exciting adventure. I really couldn't put the book down!

I love animals and have watched some of Paul O'Grady's programmes so I was excited when I saw this book by him. It's a great story about a boy called Eddie who can talk to animals. He has a dog who he can talk to and along with his other pets, they get into an adventure which is funny and gripping at the same time. There is a villain in the book who Eddie and his Aunt have to defeat and it's great that there are plenty of laughs as well as a brilliant storyline. I really wanted to keep reading to find out what happened next and couldn't put the book down! You will love this book if you love animals and enjoy a good adventure story, along with comedy....

A crazy adventure for a boy who can talk to animals!

A boy called Eddie can somehow talk to and heal animals. He ends up staying with his Auntie in Amsterdam with his pet dog, two hamsters and two goldfish! They have to rescue an orangutan and it all gets a bit wild!
My favourite part is when Eddie meets a parrot and the parrot rips the hair off a mean woman called Vera. It was so funny. All of the bits with him talking to the animals are funny and I think it would be cool to be able to have a chat with animals.... Read Full Review
