Product Description

Aaarggh! Alastair D’Arcy McDermott – otherwise known as Al – has been lumbered with the holiday project from hell: helping out at the local old folk’s home. How did he end up getting stuck with daft old Violet Rose, batty Major Maddocks and a dozen living corpses? But then he meets the sinister Mrs Black, and all of a sudden the fun begins. Al is on the greatest mission of his life: Operation Kick Butt. And he’s about to discover that these old-timers are still alive and kicking!
