My Uncle Silas
A new Granada TV series starting this fall in the UK. Uncle Silas, the rural reprobate, was popularized in H.E. Bates' magazine short stories. This complete collection is illustrated by Edward Ardizzonne's original drawings - perfectly capturing the little red-thatched house atop a violet-banked lane. Over the course of 95 years Uncle Silas led an active life, and loved to boast of his daring fights, and the women whose hearts he'd captured, over a glass of cowslip wine.

'What a waste of me!' it yelled. Then along came a man. 'I could do with a coat like that,' the man said. Together, swooping and swinging, they travelled to the Cafe Delitzia, and had the night of their lives. A bold and original picture book.
