Horace Horrise, the UK’s funniest and naughtiest young person, finally makes it to his first scout meeting and forms an immediate alliance with his fellow scouters that are in Ravens patrol. He returns home and tells his mother about all of the interesting activities that he has been participating in, including working towards his smallholders’ badge.

 

Mrs Horrise makes an unguarded comment about how she would like to have a more productive garden and Horace decides that he is the person for the job. He sets about enlisting the Ravens and a few adults, some of whose acquaintance he has already made, in order that he might transform his mother’s outdoor space whilst she is away.

 

Unbeknown to Horace, the weekend that he picks for his “transformational gardening” project is the same one that his mother has decided upon for a surprise fiftieth birthday party for her husband. Before long the two competing interests for the use of the Horrise back garden come together.

 

Disaster is imminent but at the eleventh hour Horace hatches a desperate plan in order to save not only his skin but also his parents’ impending humiliation in front of their invited guests.

 

Horace is desperate to do his best but does he save the day or does the Horrise name become the laughing stock of Chislehurst?

 

This book is the third in a series of nine stories that make up The Adventures of Horace Horrise, the 21st century’s answer to Richmal Crompton’s Just William.
