    Leaving his parents, his Mad Uncle Jack, and his Even Madder Aunt Maud at home at Awful End, Eddie Dickens, along with the color-blind Lady Constance, boards the ship the Pompous Pig on a mission to America. In the third installment of the Eddie Dickens saga, our poor hero Eddie finds himself on the way to America aboard the sailing ship Pompous Pig, along with a cargo hold full of left shoes, the world-famous Dog's Bone Diamond, and some of the most dangerous traveling companions anyone might have the misfortune to share a ship with. A mysterious stowaway and some familiar faces from Eddie's past only complicate matters, as does being tied up and set adrift in a leaky rowboat. (Don't you hate it when that happens?) Will Eddie ever reach America?

    In this, the second of his Further Adventures, Eddie Dickens is unaware that he is Eddie Dickens. Following a nasty accident he's lost his memory and believes himself t be someone called Neddy (which is actually the name of the baby he and Even Madder Aunt Maud found in the bulrushes). Taken in by monks with appalling dress sense--hence the title--he's also forgotten that his father, Mr. Dickens, has been the victim of his own accident (a fallen chimney pot). Things are further confused by the not-so-famous engineer Fandango Jones's suspicions of skulduggery and foul play
