Bagthorpes V. the World - Bagthorpe Saga 4 Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Bagthorpes V. the World - Bagthorpe Saga 4

After Mr. Bagthorpe gets an enormous (and erroneous) bank overdraft statement, he goes even further round the bend. This time, his obsession is Survival - the Bagthorpes, typically rather soft-living types, will live off the fruit of the land and their own labors. Of course, things go badly from the start and then get worse. A number of unfortunate episodes (including ones involving chickens, flower seeds, whiskey, a goat, and any number of funerals) ensue. Matters are not helped any, either, by the arrival of wealthy Great-Aunt Lucy, who has Bees in her Bonnet and a few nutty obsessions of her own. This is the fourth book in the Bagthorpe Saga, and the last really good one; this is a funny romp with the archetypal British eccentrics.
