‘Graham says that boys always like soccer,’ I said.
‘So maybe I don’t like soccer because I used to be half woman,’ said Uncle Leo.
‘What? You used to be half woman? When?’
‘When I was visiting the Unfarious tribe,’ said Uncle Leo.

Uncle Leo is no ordinary uncle, he’s one-of-a-kind—he’s an adventurer, a traveller, a magician, all rolled into one. Join him as he tells Andy and his brother Graham all about his adventures at the West Pole—from falling down and losing his memory while searching for hidden treasure to being turned into half man, half woman to fight a terrible monster; from being captured and experimented upon in Professor Scientifani’s lab to dreaming a dream from which he can never wake up!

Funny and endearing, the fourth book in the Uncle Leo series brings to life the magic of storytelling, accompanied by lively and colourful illustrations.
