In the second story, Spiral Stair, Arabel and Mortimer are on the train going to visit Uncle Irk. Chris Cross is now working at the zoo and is a valuable ally when Arabel is tracking down thieves. In this story you will meet Noah the boa along with several other animals. Mortimer plans payback on the giraffes who stole his doughnut! Yes you may get a urge to go buy some doughnuts!
The third story, Mortimer and the Sword Excalibur, takes place in the public gardens opposite the Jones' house. Contractors are in digging a big hole for an underground car park. Mrs Jones is busy sewing Arabel a dress or at least she was before Mortimer interfered. Mortimer also has his eye on Mr. Walpole's Lawnsabre. Will he get his desire of actually using it? Meet Sandy, a young boy, who is juggling and tightroping etc in the gardens. What is discovered in the hole? I thought this story actually ended a little abruptly.
The illustration on page 42 of the Kindle version appears to be in draft format as it is not like the others at all!
The Arabel and Mortimer books are on the silly side BUT they are well written, not dumbed down and have some great descriptions. Arabel is given WAY more freedom than probably most parents would be happy with in today's world and of course, Mortimer's antics are quite unreal. Our kids LOVED this book though and the illustrations by Quentin Blake really help bring the characters and situations to life.
