From the author of DEMOLITION DAD, the CBBC Book of the Month June 2017, comes the fourth and final hilarious Storey Street by Phil Earle, illustrated by Waterstones Children’s Book Prize-shortlisted artist, Sara Ogilvie. Perfect for fans of Roald Dahl, Liz Pichon and David Walliams.

Kay Catt has a nickname – Scaredy Catt. And with good reason. You’ve never met a more timid, anxious girl in your life. And when you meet her dad, you’ll start to understand why. But when a mysterious old man is spotted on Storey Street, it heralds the start of a great adventure for Kay. Because Wilf Wilkinson isn’t your average, cardigan-wearing, sherbet lemon-sucking old codger. Oh no. Wilf wears a cloak, and a strange pointy hat, and his walking stick looks suspiciously like an over-sized wand.

Wilf couldn’t be a wizard … could he?


Superbly illustrated by Sara Ogilvie, this is a hilarious story with a very positive and encouraging conclusion... sad it is the last in the series.

Hilarious and sometimes heart-breaking Phil chooses, like in 'The War Next Door', to take the usually one dimensional characters and allow us, the reader, to discover what has shaped them and made them the way they are. [...] I'm extremely sad to see the end of the Storey Street stories but I know that they will live in the imaginations of the children in my school for a long time to come.

this is a lovely book with all the right ingredients -- goodies, baddies and the very mysterious Wilf.
