The Complete Uncle

Date Published
The six ‘Uncle’ books, first written by J.P Martin to entertain his children and grandchildren, later illustrated by Sir Quentin Blake, were originally published in the sixties and seventies. This is the first reprinting of some of the later books in the series, and presents all of them in one volume for the first time.

Uncle is a kind-hearted elephant who lives in an endlessly massive castle, accompanied by his motley crew of companions and employees, including the Old Monkey, Goodman the cat, the One-Armed Badger and many more. Near his castle sits Badfort, home of Uncle's enemies, a disreputable group including Hateman, Jellytussle, Hitmouse and other unpleasant characters.

Neil Gaiman, Garth Nix, Martin Rowson, Andy Riley, Kate Summerscale, Justin Pollard, Richard Ingrams and Will Self have each provided new introductions or other exclusive material for this edition, which has been published after a phenomenally successful Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign.
