    Paperback Ý Ordinary Jack PDF/EPUB Ì ordinary pdf, jack free, Ordinary Jack KindleFor the life of me I can't remember exactly how the Bagthorpes entered my life It must have been a random grab off my local library shelf because I've never heard of them referenced or mentioned in the years since but then it's my impression that its prolific author Helen Cresswell has never really had much of a presence on this side of the Atlantic All I know is that at a certain time in my life—that is that awful moment just before entering middle school—I read this series obsessively ordering copies from small rural library branches from all over Central California to fuel my obsession And this the inaugural title was always my particular favorite And it's really not hard reading it now to see why It completely m

    Paperback Ý Ordinary Jack PDF/EPUB Ì ordinary pdf, jack free, Ordinary Jack KindleIf PG Wodehouse had been writing novels for young readers during the last uarter of the 20th century he might have come up with something like Ordinary Jack the first in Helen Cresswell's series The Bagthorpe Saga Jack a hopelessly conventional and normal boy stuck in the middle of the madcap eccentric Bagthorpe family known for their prodigious achievements wonders how he can ever get himself noticed Uncle Parker not exactly brilliant himself sympathizes and comes up with a plan Jack will become a prophet and go in for such mystical pursuits as visions water divining crystal ball gazing and Tarot card reading Of course all sorts of complications and much hilarity ensue To add to the fun there's a lovable dog named ZeroI bought this book and its first six seuels there have since been three of them in British paperback editions uite a number of years ago Unfortunately they seem to have gone out of print and are hard to find It would be great if the publisher

    Paperback Ý Ordinary Jack PDF/EPUB Ì ordinary pdf, jack free, Ordinary Jack KindleOne of the ten books in the Bagthorpe Saga Ordinary Jack was my first foray into the work of Helen Cresswell who has over 100 titles under her belt Never have I laughed so much in reading any book and I have read a lot of funntybooks the anarchic lifestyle of the Bagthorpe family based upon the author's own family is as horrifying as it is wholly entertaining Poor Jack is surrounded by savant esue siblings and parents As the youngest he feels that there are no specialisms or skill left for him to excel at and anyway he's not uite that sort of person He's interested in his dog and comics than reading Voltaire or playing the violin But when the rather wily Uncle Parker notices the injusti

    Paperback Ý Ordinary Jack PDF/EPUB Ì ordinary pdf, jack free, Ordinary Jack KindleThe Bagthorpe Saga comprises ten books though the tenth is terribly hard to find beginning with this one Ordinary Jack They are a chronicle of the adventures of the eccentric Bagthorpe family Mr Bagthorpe an irritable paranoid scriptwriter; Mrs Bagthorpe juvenile magistrate and problem solver; their four children William Tess Jack and Rosie all except Jack multi talented; Grandma the trouble making matriarch of the clan; Aunt Celia and Uncle Parker and their four year old daughter Daisy a pint sized catastrophe waiting to happen; and Mrs Fosdyke the Bagthorpes' crotchety but talented cookThese are hilarious books; I've read the first four at least ten times since I discovered them twenty years ago the later ones are recent acuisitions and they still make me laugh out loud The first four are the best; they're largely told from the point of view of Jack the only ordinary one in the family and his common sense and normality help to anch

    Paperback Ý Ordinary Jack PDF/EPUB Ì ordinary pdf, jack free, Ordinary Jack KindleThis was a light funny book enjoyable by children and adults alike She seems to take inspiration from Roald Dahl as a lot of the characters are a bit boastful and spoiled; however in this book even the 'bad' characters have redeeming characters By the end of the book I was even fond of Jack's boastful family; whereas in Charlie and the Chocolate factory the children were really hateful It has some of the same feel in that poor old Jack is poor in skills and the other characters have several strings to their bow talents while Charlie Bucket is poor in money and the rest of the child

    Paperback Ý Ordinary Jack PDF/EPUB Ì ordinary pdf, jack free, Ordinary Jack KindleI discovered this book the first in the expansive Bagthorpe Saga somewhere around fifth grade I thought it was funny then and I think it's funny now So do my kids I read it aloud to my older boy about four years ago and am now reading it to my youngest Guess what The older boy now about to turn fifteen has been sitting in and laughs his head off Serious literatureNopeCaustic witty sly and full of spot on large family dynamics YepCresswell's style involves endless modifying clauses and I do wish she's sometimes just get on with it perhaps I'm a bit like Mr Bagthorpe in this regard but the comedy never gets lost Great young adult reading and a great way to re visit young adulthood for those who's already grown dare I say it old
