    "Uncle Harry!" Jennie screeched. Dudley was too late to hold her back, so the girl shot herself at his cousin at impressive speeds for her slight build. Harry caught her, laughing, and effortlessly raised her off the floor and over his head in a spin. Jennie laughed uncontrollably as Harry spun around with her over his head, before placing her.

We only got Dudley stuck inside of a snake enclosure. Not a big deal, at least the snake wasn't inside too. That would of been worse. But hey, that's just my opinion.

Take a world-traveling uncle with a penchant for potions. Add his enthusiastic year-old narrator nephew, absent parents, a few grumpy goblins, and miscellaneous quirky characters.

Mix well. The result, like Duncan and his Uncle Dudley's attempted adventures, doesn't quite turn out as expected. Rather than being a fun read, Yourgrau's story seems overstuffed with incident and oddly lacking.

In fact, Uncle Dudley's potions result mostly in chaos, causing friction with his nephew Duncan, who increasingly yearns for his uncle to live up to his exotic stories.

There's a lot of gentle humor here and a little slapstick too, especially when Uncle Dudley and Duncan try their hands at flying on bubbles.5/5(1).
