Description - The Dead Fathers Club by Matt Haig

Philip Noble is an eleven-year-old in crisis. His pub landlord father has died in a road accident, and his mother is succumbing to the greasy charms of her dead husband's brother, Uncle Alan. The remaining certainties of Philip's life crumble away when his father's ghost appears in the pub and declares Uncle Alan murdered him. Arming himself with weapons from the school chemistry cupboard, Philip vows to carry out the ghost's relentless demands for revenge. But will Leah, the gorgeous daughter of Uncle Alan's God-fearing business partner, Mr Fairview, prove too much of a distraction? And can the words of a ghost be trusted any more than the lies of the living? Philip makes his decision and when the moment comes to act, he finds himself hurtling towards disaster. Just as Matt Haig's acclaimed and bestselling first novel, The Last Family in England, was a brilliant reworking of Henry IV Part 1, with dogs in the major roles, so The Dead Fathers Club gives more than a nod towards Hamlet. Hilariously funny, it is full of poignant insights into the strange workings of the world seen through the eyes of a child.
