The World Does Not Revolve Around Curmudgeon Avenue replaces the stars of its previous novels with the Rose sisters (Toonan and Wantha), Georgina Foote, Zandra, and many other side characters (some fresh faces and some old ones). Wantha Rose stumbled upon Georgina Foote at Manchester Town Hall, where Wantha was scheduled to marry Ricky Ricketts. When Ricky Ricketts did not show up, the red-faced Wantha made Georgina swear that she would not talk about this day to another soul. However, Georgina Foote broke that promise over Facebook; thus, insulting Wantha at her own territory, aka the internet.
Samantha Henthorn has covered a lot of ground in the third book of Curmudgeon Avenue series, Edna and Genevieve Escape From Curmudgeon Avenue. Edna, who did not appear a lot in the second book, has made an impressive comeback in the third part of the series. In the company of her beloved, Genevieve Dubois, Edna is smiling more and, funnily enough, farting even more. Her dream of settling in France has finally come true. However, she cannot ignore Genevieve’s reluctance to explore the country. Unbeknownst to Edna, Genevieve cannot risk being recognized due to a dark secret of her own.
The house with all its “nincompoops” is back with a whole new dose of stupidity in The second book in the Curmudgeon Avenue series, The Harold and Edith Adventures by Samantha Henthorn. With Edna presumably gone to France with the love of her life, Genevieve, Harold had become a permanent lodger in Number One Curmudgeon Avenue. Despite his unbearable smell, he had found a way to sweep Edith off her feet. Additionally, he discovered a passion for “blaming, claiming and complaining” to the benefits agency. Meanwhile, Edith started staring at her ring-less finger more than ever. On top of everything else, Harold had to look out for “the tall, handsome and well-dressed man,” who, in his viewpoint, was “either a fraud investigator or an elephant detective.”
