Product description

Ever wondered where a boy with as much magical bad luck as Jiggy came from? Look into the past and meet his ancestors to see! In Jiggy’s Genes, a ridiculously funny new series, you’ll find out that through centuries past, there have always been Jiggys! In this first adventure, a fifteenth-century Jiggy meets a dodgy lawyer called Merlin and a down-at-heel pickpocket called Arthur. In these long-ago days before Ranting Lane School and the Jiggy we know and cringe at today, what humiliating traumas will befall our hapless historical hero?

    Not the best Jiggy McCue book but still great. Joins up to a couple of other books with clues about the piddle pond.
