The Caddy Kids Series
N J Gemmell
The Caddy Kids are four wilful children from outback Australia. When their father, an heroic adventurer, goes missing, the authorities ship the kids off to London. Here they are hurled into the weird home of their uncle Basti, the Kensington Reptilarium, home to hundreds of snakes. Uncle Basti is none too pleased by the intrusion of his grubby relatives. But, thanks to the snakes, he is facing the outrage of his neighbours and the Caddy Kids turn out to be resourceful allies.
