Whilst flipping through issues of The Girl's Own Paper from the 1890s, it gradually dawned on Philip Ardagh that he was witnessing tantalising glimpses of an unfolding story of mystery and intrigue in the seemingly unrelated illustrations. With these original illustrations and his brand-spanking-new text, he's created the quite extraordinary, very funny and unashamedly silly The Not-So-Very-Nice Goings-On at Victoria Lodge, destined to become an immediate family favourite in houses (and flats) across the nation. In writing The-Not-So-Very-Nice Goings-On at Victoria Lodge, Philip Ardagh follows in the grand tradition of E. V. Lucas and George Morrow and their 1911 book What A Life! which was based on a (heavily doctored) Whiteley's store catalogue; Woody Allen's What's Up, Tiger Lily? (an existing Japanese film for which he created a completely new plot and dialogue); and those caption competitions you used to find in the back of Punch.

In The Not-So-Very-Nice Goings-On at Victoria Lodge, Philip Ardagh uncovered skulduggery of the murkiest kind lurking within the seemingly innocent illustrations of The Girls' Own Paper. In The Silly Side of Sherlock Holmes he created 'A Brand New Adventure Using A Bunch of Old Pictures' from the Strand Magazine. Now, in The Scandalous Life of the Lawless Sisters, he has exposed the antics of one of the Victorian underworld's most notorious and feared all-female gangs by applying new captions to pictures from Punch of 1880.

In this, the third and final of The Further Adventures of Eddie Dickens, our saucer-eyed hero Eddie Dickens finds himself embroiled in an attempt to foil a plot to steal an oil painting of Mad Uncle Jack, mistakenly commissioned by the War Office (who thought he was the other Major Dickens). Add to this the explosive mix of Even Madder Aunt Maud and Annabelle, the baby pet crocodile she now leads around on a silver chain; Dr Samuel Moot, besotted by Maud since a young man, having once shot Mad Uncle Jack (twice) in a duel; Gherkin a professional dwarf; Eddie's Uncle Alfie and surfeit of heather; and all the usual suspects (including Malcolm, of course) . . . and you're in for another slice of the ridiculous served up in the way that only Ardagh can.
