Absolute Zero: the Christmas chapter

Today, something a little bit different. This is the last chapter (in three parts) of a hilarious book called “Absolute Zero”, about the eccentric Bagthorpe Family. I think it will be enjoyable even if you are unfamiliar with the book.

Quick summary up to this point: the entire Bagthorpe Family has become obsessed with entering competitions. Their dog, Zero, has had the most success, becoming the nationally famous spokesdog for “Buried Bones” pet food. In addition, through big sister Tess’s clever manipulation of the truth, the family has been named “Happiest Family in England”; because of this, they’ve had a film crew in their house for weeks and their “Happy” Christmas celebration will be broadcast live on television.

    Aren’t the Bagthorpes just THE BEST? My son and I quote them all the time and my 4yo niece sometimes reminds us of Daisy. Her favorite stick broke yesterday and we had to have a funeral… lol!
