As with Nick Spalding's other novels we have the "he said / she said" swapping forth of chapters. I enjoy this method of getting both sides of the story. This time, it's brother and sister Daniel and Hayley Daley who tell us of when their grandmother left them a dilapidated house in her will and they decide to do it up. Obviously they haven't got a clue.
This is not an original story by any means, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It was very lightweight and I'm sure more could have gone wrong. Perhaps that was the beauty of it. It didn't drag me down. If I was watching it on screen, it would be in bright colours, rather than dingy greys.
And who wouldn't want a pet Pat the Cow?
