Beelzebelle is the fifth book in the Clovenhoof series
Only Jeremy Clovenhoof could accidentally acquire a baby, but he’s ready to be a Dad- in his own way.
Meanwhile Michael has discovered a new church, Ben has found a new hobby in taxidermy, and there is a wild beast roaming around Sutton Coldfield.
I’m glad to see the series back with Clovenhoof, not that I didn’t like the others, I just missed that group.
Clovenhoof approaches parenthood like no other, including hiring a monkey assistant and joining a mother’s group in a quest for milk for the baby. Of course things don’t quite go to plan, especially as he’s not really the baby’s father!
A lot of the more action-y part of the story is focussed around Michael who finds a new church which rewards its members for ‘good deads’, a bit like a supermarket loyalty card. and also, accidently creates a beast in the lab where he works.
As with most of the clovenhoof novels most of the action is towards the end, but there is an amusing journey to get there.
