Still as funny as the first two parts and I just love Even Madder Aunt Maud and her stuffed stoat Malcom (or is it Sally?). And for some reason I got the American edition of the books from Amazon Germany and there is this really delightful glossary for Americans in the back of the book (in all three parts actually). ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0439537614, Mass Market Paperback)

The riotous, raucous, and all-round inspirational conclusion to the rousing Eddie Dickens Trilogy (stoat and all!)

In the third installment of the Eddie Dickens saga, our poor hero Eddie finds himself on the way to America aboard the sailing ship Pompous Pig, along with a cargo hold full of left shoes, the world-famous Dog's Bone Diamond, and some of the most dangerous traveling companions anyone might have the misfortune to share a ship with. A mysterious stowaway and some familiar faces from Eddie's past only complicate matters, as does being tied up and set adrift in a leaky rowboat. (Don't you hate it when that happens?)
Will Eddie ever reach America?

Leaving his parents, his Mad Uncle Jack, and his Even Madder Aunt Maud at home at Awful End, Eddie Dickens, along with the color-blind Lady Constance, boards the ship the Pompous Pig on a mission to America.
