As a maid in the Fenchurch-Whittington house Delilah’s unusual skills soon lead to her being promoted to Chief Dust Eradicator and Remover.

This is the first in a series of touching and funny stories about Delilah Dusticle. Follow her on a journey of self-discovery, friendship and adventure.

Delilah Dusticle is a 16 year old girl who works for a well-known family. Delilah is a very special maid as she can completely eradicate dust. She carries around a pouch with a bunch of special dusting tools. She works for the family as the Chief Dust Eradicator and Remover. The woman of the house loves to brag about how clean her house is and she is the envy of the Ladies Club. Delilah loves her job and turns down many other jobs because she secretly has a crush on the home owner’s son, Charlie Fenchurch-Whittington the Third. However, one day Charlie Fenchurch-Whittington the Third comes home with a fianc√© and her powers start changing. Delilah could never imagine what would come of that encounter and how much her life was about to change.

This is a cute, funny, short story that I think any child would enjoy. Not only do you get the entertaining story but there are also some illustrations scattered throughout the story. I think this would be a great story to read (or have your child read aloud) before bedtime. I will definitely be giving this to my son to read!

My Rating:

In this illustrated instalment, Delilah and the Dustbusters are invited to Transylvania to cater for the Hallow Eve Ball. All is not what it seems and Count Dracula has a very unusual request for Delilah.

This is the second in a series of stories following Delilah and the Dustbusters on journeys and adventures around the world. Delilah Dusticle’s Transylvanian Adventure guarantees to have has more action than you can shake a feather duster at!

Delilah and her team have come so far and are about to go on an adventure they could have never imagined. Delilah and her Dustbusters are invited to Transylvania to clean for the well-known Dracula. However everything is not as it seems in the giant mansion. Delilah learns things about herself as Dracula explains the truth of her powers to her. Delilah must learn to harness her powers. There are spiders in football gear, British spies, and an evil baroness. I do also have to mention that one of my favorite characters in the book is the grumpy sponge. I found him to be pretty funny.

This book definitely has more of an adventure aspect than the first book and I really enjoyed it. It is funny and magical and the characters, both major and minor, are entertaining and I think children will probably enjoy this one even more than the first.

My Rating:
